Description:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sarie_Marais:
“Sarie Marais” (also known as “My Sarie Marais” and pronounced “May SAH-ree mah-REH”) is a traditional South African folk song, created during either the First Anglo-Boer War (c. 1880) (less likely) or the Second Anglo-Boer War (ca. 1900). The tune was possibly taken from a song dating from the American Civil War called “Ellie Rhee” (itself perhaps a version of the traditional folk song “Foggy Dew“), with the words translated into Afrikaans.
