You Married my Daughter but Yet You Didn't - G MajorReel

Author: Traditional
Origin: Canada - Quebec

This tune from Quebec was originally called Reel Du Petit Cordonnier (Cobbler's Reel) but later became known as Tout d'Un Coup Tu Maries Ma Fille. There are lyrics matching the tune's title that translate to "All of a sudden you marry my daughter / All of a sudden you don't / All of a sudden you go to Egypt / All of a sudden you remain in Canada." This may refer to a postponed wedding plan at the time of the 1956 Suez Canal Crisis, where Canadians were included in the peace-keeping forces.
