The Sour Apple-Tree.

The Yankee boys have caught him,
The Traitor, old Jeff. D!
I wonder if they’ll hang him
To the Sour Apple-Tree!
Don’t you think it will be right
And justice, I declare,
To hang him up to Dry, my boys,
And dangle in the air ?

Oh! when our soldiers found him,
I’ll bet he did Look rich,
With the Petticoats around him,
As he stood in his Last ditch!
Old Jeff. he wasn’t wise,
With Boots on, don’t you see ?
It was a splendid sight, I’m sure,
Such Southern Chivalry!

Now, if they hang him, it will be
A moral lesson taught
To those who might, in future time,
Like him, be evil fraught.
Some think it will be right—
Whatever it may be
I really think they’ll hang him
To the Sour Apple-Tree !
