History Of "Katie Cruel"
"This song is said to date back to colonial times and was supposedly sung by American troops during the Revolutionary war. It was sung to several tempos. Troops marched to the tune, children skipped to it and women sang it.

Though the origins of the song are mysterious, the text is often linked to the Scottish songs, Licht Bob's Lassie and Aye Waukin'O. It is sometimes also considered part of the family of songs that include I Know Where I'm Going and the words have been sung to that tune."
