My Love He is a Zou-Zu, Only 19 Years Old



My Love he is a Zou-Zu, Only 19 Years Old.

My love is a Zou-Zu so gallant and bold;
He’s rough, and he’s handsome, scarce 19 y’rs old.
To show off in Washington, he has left his
own dear,
And my heart is a breaking because he’s not here.

His parents taught him to be a Cavalier,
But the life of a Zou-Zu he much did prefer;
For, his heart’s with his Country in right, or in wrong
And in Richmond with Farnham he’ll be afore long.

My fond heart is beating for him constantly,
But I fear his affections may waver from me;
For, a sweet-heart can be found in each State,
I am told,
By a young man, a Zou-Zu only 19 years old.

And now for my Zou-Zu I grieve and repine,
For fear that his brave heart may never be mine;
All the wealth of Jeff Davis in cotton, or gold,
I would give for my Zou-Zu only 19 years old
