H.DE MARSAN DEALER IN SONGS TOY BOOKS & CNO. 54 CHATHAM. N.Y.
Now, listen to my song,
And I won’t detain you long.
I just come from a Southern plantation;
I’m a contraband, you see,
And Sherman set me free. .
For, he is the greatest General in the Nation!
When the Lincoln-Sogers come,
You ought to see Ole Massa run. .
I thought sure that Babylon had fallen!
Then, I began to holler. .
And after him did follow:
But, of course, he didn’t seem to hear me call him.
Now, Ole Massa he has gone:
Since they’ve taken Charleston,
I saw him skedaddle on that occasion;
But, I guess, he’ll leff us be;
For, he knows that we is free:
At least, so says Lincoln’s Proclamation.
Now, the war is at an end,
To Beecher’s church we’ll all attend,
And hear Politics and Religion amalgamated.
Horace Greely, and Phillips, too:
They will tell us what they’ll do
With those coler’d folks that am confiscated.
