IIRC, it's "Froggie Went a-Courtin'." The one with the "keemo-kymo" type chorus.

Alvin mutters "Sourwood Mountain" ("I got a gal...") a couple of times.

Soundtrack listing at imdb gives several: Sergeant York soundtrack, including I got a gal... Froggie not listed (doesn't mean it didn't appear; I suspect small snippets never make it to the soundtrack listing)

"Michi Cambo"(sp?)

Pretty sure it was a common folk song back in the day. Also pretty sure I butchered the spelling.

I met Luke once back in the early 50's, I was about 5 or 6 . It was in Ramsgate Kent. I don't know why he was there but he was just getting into his limo when I caught his eye. He shook hands with me and gave me sixpence.

I'll never forget that moment. It was my first brush with fame.

Cheers

Bugsy

There's a YouTube video of that scene from Sgt York, with Luke singing Froggie Went a-Courtin' on his mule, at:
