I only got this one by chance, looking at the back of a CD that was lying around.
I may have the titles backwards, but here goes:

Northern version: "Weeping Sad and Lonely"
Southern version: "When This Cruel War is Over"

(though this may not have been completely uniform, as I found a sheet music cover for the Southern lyrics published in Savannah that has the Northern title as the main title with the Southern title in smaller print underneath)

ACK forget that. The image was from a Northern version after all. My fault for not double-checkign with LOC before hitting "post". :banghead:

Edit - The answer you stated is correct and you didn't revise it, so you get credit for a correct response.
