The Hero of Lexington.
Friends, one and all,
Your attention I will call
To somethings, at Lexington, that have been raging,
That will touch the present times,
I will tell you in, a ryme,
To the tune of the Happy Land of Canaan.
There will be an end to this Happy Land of Canaan.
Col. Muligan has arrived,
And he says: he thinks he will strive
To some peace, at Lexington, he will be gaining;
So, he took the Rebel Commissioner Brownlee;
After talking to him soundly,
Sent him down to the Happy Land of Canaan.
On the Seventh of September,
I suppose you all remember
That Price sent in his Flag of truce, and asked if we would surrender.
But Col. Muligan thought it, better much by far,
For us to die Brave Soldiers in this war.
Than to be a Traitor to our Happy Land of Canaan!
At Columbia’s festive board,
Sets the Demon of Discord,
Smuggled in by the damned politicians;
They want to break up the Eagle’s nest,
And drench with Brother’s blood,
In our Happy Land of Canaan.
The detestable cause
Of disregarding all the laws.
Is what the people of this laud is complaining:
They want the Union preserved.
And hope that Lincoln will have the nerve
To set things right, once more, in our Happy Land of Canaan.
