This folk song originates from Ireland, but was quickly adopted in the USA during the American Civil War. The Irish words related to an Irish soldier who fought for the British East India Company in Ceylon (now called Sri Lanka). The American version was published in 1863, with new words written by an Irish-American bandleader, which express the longing of relatives for their loved ones to return home safely from the Civil War. This is the version we know today.
