The Battle March

From the playing of Hanz Araki. Composed by Shane MacGowan.

The Battle March, X:2

From the playing of The Pogues. It’s the first tune in their Battle March Medley.

The Battle March, X:3

Some combination of X1 & X2, with the one bar of 6/4 reduced to a bar of 4/4.

X3 works with that 6/4 bar re-introduced, as, "g8 gfed", instead of "g4 gfed".
