An early work, Cobb dedicated Mr. Yankee to a certain William J. H. McGurn of whom nothing is presently known. As to the march itself, its form is AABBACCBB with a 4-bar introduction and a 4-bar interlude preceding the final BB-strains whereby the AB- and C-strains are written in the major keys of C and F respectively. The 2nd B-strain in each block is played an octave higher than the first iteration. Predictably, the march is characterised by snatches of patriotic phrases interspersing the stirring melodies - a musical alternative for the fourth of July perhaps!
Mr. Yankee was published by Geo. L. Cobb, Buffalo, New York, USA.
A tempo of 80 crotchets/min. is suggested.
