43. Western Trooper's song. Old Zolly's got his rights, Without having many fights, He never had made one that he could brag on. He made his last stand On the rolling Cumberland, And was sent to the happy land of Canaan. Old Zolly's gone, And the secesh will have to mourn, Because they thought he'd do to depend on; But he knew his end was nigh When he met with Colonel Fry, Who sent him to the happy land of Canaan. Oh!
Zollicoffer's dead, And the last words he said: “I see another wild cat a comina.” Up steps Colonel Fry, And shot him in the eye, And sent him to the happy land of Canaan.
The dead brought to Life again.--The following remarkable incident occurred in Dodgeville, Wisconsin:
When the present war first broke out, a young man who resided in the above village joined a company commanded by Capt. Tom Allen, which was afterward incorporated in the Second regiment of Wisconsin Volunteers, and was present at the terrible and disastrous battle of Bull Run.
