This loyal song appeared originally in England. Rivington published it in the Royal Gazette, in November, 1779, and afterwards on a ballad sheet, with the chorus, " Derry Down."
A NEW BALLAD.
Rouse, Britons ! at length,
And put forth your strength, Perfidious France to resist,
Ten Frenchmen will fly,
To shun a black eye, If an Englishman doubles his fist.
Derry down, down, hey derry down.
But if they feel stout, Why let them turn out,
