ZOUAVE JOHNNY FROM BULL RUN. 11
And if that great man was alive, I tell you you'd see fun, For he would show Jeff Davis that he could take Bull Run.
Come, boys, etc.
If the-papers would mind their business, and people hold
their tongues, The soldiers down at that great fight would never had to
run; y They thought that Scott was long-winded, and that he was
not right; But if^old Scott had been left alone, Bull Run would have
been all right. Come, boys, etc/
The Seventy-first fought well—the Seventy-ninth did too; The Sixty-ninth they were around, and the Fourteenth
wasn't slow; But the gallant New York Fire Zouaves shall never be
forgot, For they wolloped the Black-Horse Cavalry, and only left
six of the lot.
Come, boys, etc.
ZOUAVE JOHNNY FROM BULL RUN. Written and sung by W. S. Budworth.
Come all you soldiers, so fearless and brave,
Come listen to my ditty; For I belong to the Fire Zouaves,
That started from New York city. "We left our families and all our friends— To save the Union I shouldered my gun; And what I tell you I know is so,
For I'm Zouave Johnny from Bull Run.
That good old man, brave General Scott,
Has retired from the army; And General McClellan then took his place.
Although the times- looked stormy. 2*
