From the recording E-And'a
La Ville Des Manteaux (Trad.) 7:04
From Corsica, or Sardinia, or Louisiana, or all five. Learned from Michel Doucet, King of the 'Kadian Fiddlers. The original has great Old French lyrics about The Town Of Raincoats (um, really!?) being an OK town, if you like towns. Other lyrics confess that the residents made fun of Napoleon for being short, and then look what happened. This tune contains about 70% added material made up by Darol…. not to mention everyone's fecund and lavish solos. This version is more like a leisurely peregrination through the surrounding countryside, swigging the local vino.
