77. Jeff. Davis is coming, O! O!Air--“Campbells are Coming.” Jeff. Davis is coming, O! 0!
When shall we see him, O! O?
When the river is rising? Oh, No!
He will wait till the river is low.
And Johnston is coming, O! O!
Go get me a trumpet to blow--
His movements are dreadfully slow,
And when, if he comes, will he go?
Beauregard is coming, O! O!
On a charger as white as the snow
Col. Thing-a-mee gave him for show--
He will free us (of money) I know.
There they are, all three in a row,
Brave Johnston, and Jeff., and the Beau.;
Will they wade, if the river is low?
Or wait till it ceases to flow?
