Hurrah for Jeff. Davis

Hurrah for Jeff. Davis.

Hurrah for Jeff. Davis, Hurrah!
And hurrah for brave Beauregard, too;
Hurrah for the legion, the brave Southern men,
And down with the scared Yankee crew.

We’ve whipped them some five or six tomes––
They’ve thrown down their muskets and guns;
The teamsters ahead, the Bug-a-boos saw,
And away ran the brave mother’s sons!

Gen. Patterson’s the General for me,
He knows when to beat a retreat
And get out of all danger, for fear that himself
Or his horse, in the race, should be beat.

Never mind now about the knapsacks—
Pitch swords and canteens on the ground;
“Right about face,” and then “Double Quick” step
To Washington! on with a bound.

Hurrah for Jeff. Davis, Hurrah!
And hurrah for brave Beauregard, too;
Hurrah for the legion, the brave Southern men,
Three groans for the scared Yankee crew!
