Darkey Conscript.

When I was a little moke I used to stay at home,
Now I am a big nig to this war I’ll roam;
Although I am conscript, I feel mighty gay,
I’ll hold an office next election day.

There’s Horace Greely, he wants the niggers free,
Then he promised to take them all on a spree;
But when the time comes he says it is no fun,
For he found out the war just begun.

Now then I sing to you, I hope you will be true,
Never forsake the Red White and Blue! But if this darkic ever comes back,
He’s bound to vote for our “little Mac.”

Now white folks I hope you take no offence,
This war was for the Union when it first commenced
But now it is played out like an old back,
All they think of is the mighty Greenback.
