I won't make any comments about the ratings of this piece, since it satisfied all the basic requirements of a good marching/army song. Anything more would not be a unanimous error, but rather a voicing of one's opinion. i.e. good job.
BUT. CAN ANYONE TELL ME WHAT SONG IS THIS BASED OFF OF? I'VE HEARD OF IT BEFORE BUT CAN'T FIND IT.
The original song I believe was written in the late 1800's for the American Civil War. It was titled When Johnny Comes Marching Home.
Johnny I hardly Knew Ye, created in 1963.

Basically the irish folk song is an anti war piece and it's lyrics are quite dark singing about a horribly mutilated soldier whose entire life is bleak as an amputee with no legs and arms.
Glad you liked the song! Thanks for the review.
