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

Wow! So happy to have found this thread. Was searching for this song a couple years, and never found it then. But, was looking for another Sergeant York song after hearing a tune in mile, mile & a half that reminded me of a York song.

Okay, so frog went a-courtin' wasn't exactly what I was looking for, at least any versions I could find. But, I found this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cr19CE1wVFY
and it was the closest I could find to Luke riding on his mule.

I've heard it in Sourwood Mountain
Jim Carroll

Sourwood Mountain
Chickens a-crowin' on Sourwood Mountain,
Hey, ho, diddle-um day.
So many pretty girls I can't count 'em,
Hey ho, diddle-um day.

My true love's a blue-eyed daisy,
She won't come and I'm too lazy.

Big dog bark and little one bite you,
Big girl court and little one spite you.

My true love's a blue-eyed daisy,
If I don't get her, I'll go crazy.

My true love lives at the head of the holler,
She won't come and I won't foller.

My true love lives over the river,
A few more jumps and I'll be with her.

Ducks in the pond, geese in the ocean,
Devil's in the women if they take a notion.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0034167/soundtrack

Sound track notes there but they don't say nothin' about a mule.

I can't find a clip of Luke or his mule anywhere. Maybe someone with the movie--it's blocked on YouTube--could let us at what time in the movie they are on the screen. Would certainly make this easier.

Frederick "Chubby" Parker recorded "King Kong Kitchie Kitchie Ki-Me-O" commercially around 1929.

You can hear him: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m7NBD40v5sE

I have been thinking about that movie lately, after reading about "American Sniper". Gary Cooper played a hero who didn't want to kill people. He played characters like that more than once. Can't imagine Clint Eastwood making a movie about someone like that.
