Translated in German as "Der Teufelshauptmann." Curious.

In 1949 the "yellow ribbon" probably did not translate into the contemporary German culture.

"In 1949 the "yellow ribbon" probably did not translate into the contemporary German culture."

Perhaps not, but how in tarnation did Nathan Brittles become the "Devils Captain"?

That is one of the very few pieces of military music in America that still gets a daily airing, albeit in bastardized form.

"Around the block/ she pushed a baby carriage,
She pushed it in the springtime, and the merry month of May,
And if you asked her, why the heck she pushed it,
She pushed for a soldier who was far, far away.
Far away (far away!), she pushed it for that soldier who was far, far away.

Behind the door, her daddy kept.a shotgun…."

If I heard it once, I heard it a thousand times.
