"Fiddler's Green" is a song about the place where cavalrymen go when they die located "Halfway down the trail to hell" and, in the end, advocates suicide by pistol when death is certain and the hostiles are closing in. "Fiddler's Green" possibly originated in England at least to the 19th century and is still sung today. The song speaks of a place where fishermen go if they don't go to hell. It found its way to the U.S.A with the help of Cornish settlers. The fictional place of Fiddler's Green is also the final resting place for pirates.
