Give Me A Noble Fellow With a Bucktail in His Hat.

You may boast of fancy Regiments,
With their clothes of every hue;
Of the famous Zouave D’Afrique:
With the flaming cap and que.
You may talk of Reg’ment so and so,
Of Company this and that;
But give me a noble fellow,
With a bucktail in his hat.

Lithe of limb and firm of purpose,
Penna’s choicest Volunteers;
Oh! for the glorious bucktails,
Three times three tremendous cheers.
They are strong, and brave, and faithful,
Tho’ they never boast of that;
Then give me a noble fellow,
With a bucktail in his hat.

First they’ll be where shots are flying,
First in peace when war is done;
First in the hearts of loving ones:
Who’ll welcome them at home.
If the foe were twice as mighty,
They would give him tit for tat;
Then give me a noble fellow,
With a bucktail in his hat.

A W. Auner, Song Publisher, N. E. cor. 11th & Market, Philada.,Pa.
