19th century Vienna drinking song

If anyone knows the sheet music of this tune:

Ja wir san halt Lichtentaler.mpg

Ja mir san halt Lichtentaler

I discovered this tune on a cd with Viennese drinking songs. The track is called "Aber g'rebelt muss er sein".
This appears to be an old march, "Lichtenthaler Marsch" composed by Alois Strohmayer (1822-1890), and later on converted into a drinking song, still popular today in Vienna and Austria.

It seems Alois' father played music together with the composer Franz Schubert.

"Sohn des Privatlehrers Martin St., der noch gemeinsam mit Fr. Schubert in der Lichtentaler Kirche musiziert hatte"

And just when I was going to close my internet session... I found the sheet music in pdf...

It's an arrangment by Willy Jelinek, and the sheet music is in public domain, here it is:

I found this website five minutes ago, seems to be a digital dbase of old songs sheet music.
I'll have a look later this week, maybe some more treasures can be found here.

Happy to have found the sheet music already. Now I can learn the tune to play for an evening of songs I have to go to with my accordion. I wanted to play the tune and show it to some friends.
