336 king's mountain.
The scamp had rang'd the country In search of royal aid,
And with his owls, perched on high. He taught them all his trade.
But ah ! that fatal morning,
When Shelby brave drew near !
'Tis certainly a warning
That ministers should hear.
And Campbell, and Cleveland,
And Colonel Sevier, Each with a band of gallant men,
To Ferguson appear.
Just as the sun was setting Behind the western hills,
Just then our trusty rifles sent A dose of leaden pills.
Up, up the steep together
Brave Williams led his troop,
And join'd by Winston, bold and true, Disturb'd the Tory coop.
