Darkey Conscript.

When I was a little moke, I used to stay at home;
Now I am a big nig, to dis war I’ll roam;
Although I am conscript, I feel mighty gay,
I’ll hold an office, next election day.

There’s Horace Greely, lie wants de niggers free,
Then he promises to take dem all on a spree;
But when the time comes, he says it is no fun;
For, he found out the war’s just begun.

Now then I sing to you, I hope you will be true,
Never forsake the Red, White, and Blue!
But, if dis darkie ever comes back,
He’s bound to vote for our “ Little Mac.”

Now, white folks, I hope you take no offence:
This war was for the Union, when it first commenced,
But now it is played out like an old hack,
All they think of is .the mighty Green-back.
