REVOLUTIONARY ECHOES,
or THE DAYS OK SEVENTY-SIX.
As originally sung by the Sable Brothers
Oh, come my boys, attention give, an a song I'll
sing to you, Although the story may be old the song you'll
say is new:; Its about de Revolution days, which de world did all admire, When in de hearts ob patriots brave, glowed
patriotic fire.
Fire, fire, fire, fire, fire, fire.
Chorus.—Then, hurrah for de days ob old, Then, hurrah lor de days ob old, When ebery man and woman too, Was a hero, I've been told.
Dar was a man among de rest, and Washington
was his name, An all de folks said he was de best, he had such
a mighty fame; He neber feared to face de foe, but when oder
men would fire, He wid his Continentallers, would meet de red
coats' fire.
Fire, fire, fire, fire, fire, fire.
'Chorus—An a running dey would go, An a running dey would go, For dey thought dey'd got a little dose Ob de fire down below.
