The Departure of the 69th Volunteers

The Departure of The 69th Volunteers.
The gallant 69th, once more,
Goes to the battle-field,
To leave the enemy in gore,
And make Jeff Davis yield.
We are sorry that poor Corcoran
In Rebel hands must lie,
And that he can’t command those men,
As he did in July.
We wish those brave sons of Ireland
Success where e’er they be!
To us they’ve given a strong hand,
By land as well as sea.
Then, let us all cheer up again,
And hope soon to have peace!
While with us we have old Erin,
We’ll gain it with much ease.
