Someone asked about Bill Bailey & its chord progressions. Off the top of my
head, here is a short list of tunes with the exact same progression.(or
close to it like Hindustan) There are many others. I used to have a list of
51 tunes that use the same progression but can't locate it at the moment.

One could do an entire Dixieland Concert (or 2) with those songs.

Steve Barbone

Beer Barrel Polka
Bourbon Street Parade
Hindustan (except bars 26 & 27 use a flatted 6th chord)
Just Because
Mexicali Rose
Moonlight and Roses
Over the Waves
Tiger Rag ("hold that tiger" strain)
Under the Double Eagle
Walk Right Back
Washington and Lee Swing
