hould be free! Hail to her captain and crew! Hail to her banner blue! Hail to her deathless fame! Hail to her granite name! Haughty Britannia no longer can boast That she rules the ocean waves; Her fame is dead, and its sheeted ghost Stalks discrowned on her chalky coast, Mocked by Columbia's braves. Hail to the queen of the sea! Hail to the hopes of the free! Hail to the navy that spoke! Hail to our hearts of oak! The British lion may cease his roar: For his darling privateer, At sea a pirate, a thief on shore, Now lies a wreck on the ocean floor, No longer a buccaneer. Hail to our Yankee tars! Hail to the Stripes and Stars I Hail Winslow, chief of the sea? Hail to his victory! Cheers!--“Two-Ninety,” the robber, is dead! And Semmes, the pirate-in-chief, A swordless coward, defea<*>, has fled, Bearing the curse of the<*>a on his head, To England, the home of the thief. Hail to our holy cause! Hail to our equal laws! Hail to our peace to be! Hail to all nations free! George W. Bung

2. Captain Semmes, C. S. A. N. June 19, 1864. Out of Cherbourg harbor, one clear Sunday morning, the cavalier, Captain Semmes, with his cap a-cock, Sailed from the friendly Frenchman's dock. Gaily ao!” Whispered his friend, little Jean Crapeau. Semmes has been a wolf of the deep For many a day to was he For a cavalier of high degree; And Raphael Semmes don't sound, indeed, As if it came of the ge steamed in her war array. “Heigh-ho!” said Semmes, “Let's blow That craft to splinters before we go.” Semmes had heard, with his lip a-curl, In Cherbourg, that some Northern churl, Backed by a ga. Straight out to sea the Kearsarge drew, And Semmes, who followed all that flew, Followed, perhapsed and the wounded screamed! “Heigh-ho!” said Semmes, “let's show The Yankees the heels we boast ofst other less precious spoil, Fished swordless Semmes from his watery coil! “Hide me!” the gallant ne the other way! Heigh-ho! I told you so! Oh! Semmes was a sorry fool to go!” George H. Boker. var gaJsHost = (("https:" == document.location.protocol) ?
