How many songs do you suppose can be sung to the progression of "Tiger Rag?"

Around the World (I searched for you), Won't You Come Home, Bill Bailey - 
will do for starters. But there are literally hundreds along with "Trouble 
in River City" - but that's not the same as saying these songs are also 
known as "Tiger Rag."

Respectfully submitted,

Bill "Thimbles" Gunter
