American Ballads and Folk Songs
SIEGE OF PLATTSBURG*
Back side Albany stan' Lake Champlain— Little pond, half full of water. Platt'burg dere too, close upon de main, Town small—he grow bigger, do, hereafter.
♦Sent by R. W. G. Vail, Ithaca, N. Y. Copied from an old newspaper, Brother Jonathan, published
by Wilson and Company, New York, July 4, 1845, to tune of "Boyne Water." This
version is as
sung in the theater at Albany in the character of a Negro sailor.
