Brownell The Gallant Zouave

Browne[??] the Gallant Zouave, COMPOSED BY

You may talk of your warriors of old,
Of the deeds that’s been done by their braves,
But list while I tell of young Brownell,
Of the gallant New York Fire Zouaves.
Of the gallant New York Fire Zouaves,
Of the gallant New York Fire Zouaves,
But list while I tell of young Brownell,
Of the gallant New York Fire Zouaves.

A Corporal he was in as brave a band,
As ever swore by our banner so true,
And vowed till they conquered that by it they’d stand,
And fight for the Red, White and Blue.
And fight for the Red, White and Blue,
And fight for the Red, White and Blue,
And vowed til they conquered that by it they’d stand,
And fight for the Red, White and Blue.

He went to disperse a rebel crew,
And send them all home to their slaves,
He went with his Colonel and brave regiment too,
The gallant New York Fire Zouaves.
The gallant New York Fire Zouaves,
The gallant New York Fire Zouaves,
He went with his Colonel and brave regiment too,
The gallant New York Fire Zouaves.

When they tore down the flag of the rebel,
Which Ellsworth saw wave from the street.
He was joined by the gallant young Brownell,
As he trampled it under his feet.
As he trampled it under his feet,
As he trampled it under his feet.
was joined by the gallant young Brownell,
he trampled it under his feet.

When Ellsworth was shot by the traitor,
Young Brownell rushed up to the knave,
And killed the cowardly assassin,
Like a gallant New York Fire Zouave.
Like a gallant New York Fire Zouave,
Like a gallant New York Fire Zouave,
And killed the cowardly assassin,
Like a gallant New York Fire Zouave.

Here’s health to the ladies, God bless ‘em,
And honor to Ellsworth, the brave,
Who tore down the flag of secession,
And perished, our country to save.
And perished, our country to save,
And perished, our country to save,
Who tore down the flag of secession,
And perished, our country to save.

Here’s honor and glory to Brownell,
Who acted so noble and brave,
And slew the assassin of his Colonel,
Like a gallant New York Fire Zouave.
Like a gallant New York Fire Zouave,
Like a gallant New York Fire Zouave,
And slew the assassin of his Colonel,
Like a gallant New York Fire Zouave.

May the fame of their deeds last forever,
And shine on the records of the age.
May the laurels they’ve won never wither,
But keep fresh on our history’s page.
But keep fresh on our history’s page,
But keep fresh on our history’s page,
May the laurels they’ve won never wither,
But keep fresh on our history’s page.
