Yankee Boys, So Handy, O!


Yankee Boys, So Handy, O!

It always has been told
That the Southerners so bold
Could lick the Northerners so handy, O!
But now they have found their match,
And will see when comes the scratch,
The Yankee Boys for fighting are the dandy, O!

The White House, a mansion bold,
Where the spoilers have had their hold.
Is governed by old Abe, the grandy, O!
With as choice a Kitchen crew
As ever salary drew,
And can flog the Southern traitors so handy, O!

The traitor’s shot flew hot.
But the boys they answered not.
Till they had all things well fixed and bandy, O!
Says old Abe to his crew.
Let’s see what we can do,
We’ll take this traitor Davis, this dandy. O!

The first broadside we poured.
Carried Virginia by the board,
Which made the traitors look quite abandoned, O!
Then Davis Shook his head.
And to the other traitors said.
I fear old Abe is the dandy, O!

Our second told so well
That North Carolina quickly fell
And South Carolina she surrendered so handy. O!
Says Pickens, Davis, we’re undone!
Aye, every mother’s son!
While the Northern boys were shouting we’re the
dandy, O!
