General Lee


H. DE MARSAN, Songs, Ballads, toy books. 64 Chatham Street, N.Y.

General Lee.

When the Gray-backs. in the Spring,
Warbling o’er Jeff D’,
Grub-struck, faint, I heard them sing,
Cursing General Lee:
General Lee, General Lee!
Hard tack’s scarce, we re afraid..
Go to pennsylvani-a,
On another raid.

We’ve got nary socks or shoes
For the winter’ s snows:
Shoddy pants too short and thin..
Cold wind through them blows.
General Lee, General Lee!
There’s bully clothes, they say,
Stowed ‘way in the tailors’ shops.
At pennsyl-delphi-a!
