Der Lindenbaum

The well-known German poem and song Der Lindenbaum ("Am Brunnen vor dem Tore ...") can be sung to the tune Yellow Rose of Texas. I discovered this at random a year or two ago, in the shower if I remember correctly. 

On one of my drives back home to the Florida Panhandle from Tuscaloosa when I was an undergrad, I discovered that the poem Vergißmeinnicht can also be sung to the same tune.
