That was such a great movie & song. Too bad they didn't use the tune in the movie. Anyway I thought maybe you would enjoy a video with both.

The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance: Gene Pitney (the Jimmy Stewart character was seen as the hero although it was the John Wayne character who actually shot Liberty. Great movie, great song).

Cruel War - Peter, Paul, & Mary

 

Hero and heroine, but the song is mostly about the heroine who dresses as a soldier to go into battle with the one that she loves.

"A Scottish Soldier" * Andy Stewart

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0sAitY3y9mY&ab_channel=IanMaclean

 

This the original version, used to hear this on my transistor radio when I was a kid. Made me feel like going to battle. Just like when watching them old Errol Flynn movies. Boy did things change when I got to my late teens in 67'.
