UPDATED RECORDING AVAILABLE AT http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K9TWvq...

Written by S. K. Jacques (occasionally known as S.K. Fawkes or Foxipher Jones), to the tune of "Foggy Dew", a traditional song.

Please, if you want to perform this, let me know. This is my first filk of which I am truly proud. Also, please do not use my recording for any but a personal/individual purpose, and please do not record it for any but a personal/individual purpose without my permission.

The lyrics can be found here: http://foxandpen.wordpress.com/2011/0...

[Edit] A Copyright claim was opened on YouTube against me for this video, and was later released. The following is my explanation.

The tune of both "Soldiers of 22" and of "Battle of Serenity" is the tune from the Irish Easter Rising ballad "Foggy Dew", written in 1919. Quoth the Wikipedia article, "Another song called "Foggy Dew" was written by Canon Charles O'Neill, a parish priest of Kilcoo and later Newcastle, County Down, in 1919.[2]
The music is from a manuscript that was in possession of Kathleen Dallat of Ballycastle. That manuscript gives Carl Hardebeck as the arranger." (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foggy_De...))

The lyrics are my own.
