What song is this?

Help me identify this song from a movie or TV soundtrack.

I've had the first couple of bars of a song stuck in my head for a day or so, and I know it's from a soundtrack, but I can't place it. It's either solo piano or piano over subtle orchestration. I think it's from a movie, but could be TV. Here it is as best as I can remember: the transcribed melody, a generated MIDI from that transcription, and that MIDI converted to an MP3.

Do you have any other contextual information at all (e.g. when you might have heard it)? It feels almost Ken Burnsy but I don't think it's from The Civil War.

It sounds like the background music for Drunk History specifically the beginning :10 of the first episode.

Which is pretty much Ken Burnsy.

spec80, that's definitely the song, though I'm still curious where it came from. Ken Burns is a good guess; I'll investigate further.

Figured it out from the comments on the Drunk History thing. It's from the Cold Mountain score: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Q94_xysbTQ

I had actually considered Cold Mountain, but figured it would be the main titles song, and it wasn't, so I moved on. Anyhow, thanks, all.
