Ten Little Indians Piano Sheet Music

Ten Little Indians is a childrens song and nursery rhyme, with American origins dating to 1868. The song which is known widely around the world today, lends its tune from the Irish folk song Michael Finnegan, the origin and author both of which, are unknown. And while the author of the current lyric is also unknown, it is widely accepted that Ten Little Indians derived from another song, 10 Little Injuns, written by Septimus Winner in 1868, for a Minstrel show. The similarity of this song is undeniable when compared.
