For enthusiasts of early banjo
A popular ante-bellum air, written by Albert Holland in 1854.

Updated version, eh? I like em both. Carry Me 'Long is my favorite.
Carl, Chances are you already are aware of this one.
I'm tend to seek out parodies to popular songs which are reflective of issues of the day.
In spite of the distastefulness of some of them (in this case a political party based upon anti-immigrant/ anti-Catholic fears), I always find them interesting.
Few Days (1854)
As Know Nothings, we’re hand-in-hand, few days, few days
Our countless throng shall fill the land, we know the way
The world will know that we are true, few days, few days
And that we know a thing or two, we know the way
We’ll battle innovation, few days, few days.
And fight ‘gainst usurpation by a cunning foe
For our guide is freedom’s banner, few days, few days.
Our guide is freedom’s banner. We know the way
From east and west, from south and north…. We’ll call our many legions forth…
The freedom that our fathers won…. Shall be defended by each son….
Then shout, then shout o’er hill and plain…. Our union shall its rights maintain….
We’ll guard, we’ll guard the ballot-box….. From foreign wiles and treason shocks….
Mighty fine boys, let's do this one in June and I'll pick some geetar.
Awesome! I agree with Terry, "Oh Boys, Carry Me Long" is a goodie! Got a name for yer duo yet? I"m thinkin "Two Tones".
