Tell me about it... Elaine and I have never seen these lyrics before. They are very appropriate. Can we ask where you got them? Loved your performance by the way.

John, the words can be found in the Library of Congress American Memory site, in the Songsheet section. Just type in the title. I got these lyrics from Christy's 1863 "New Songster."

Didn't see this when it was posted.  I included it in my collection of antebellum topical music and have an 1854 date for it, found in the Lester Levy collection.
