John Bell of Tennessee


John Bell Of Tennessee.

There is man of noble heart,
In Tennessee does dwell,
Who scorns the Traitor Lincoln’s raid,
His name is JOHN BELL.

Though called a rebel by his foes,
His heart in truth doth dwell,
He scorns the Tory Lincoln’s raid,
His name is John Bell.

He hears the Northern vandals voice,
Shout over hill and dell,
He laughs at Nigger Lincoln’s raid,
His name is John Bell.

Let them advance in Tennessee,
His guns are sure to tell,
He dares the tread of Yankee sneaks,
His name is Hohn Bell:

Let Northern fanatics beware,
Of famous old John Bell,
For if they come in Tennessee,
He’ll surely ring their knell.
