OUR UNION GENERALS.
There is General Eosecrans,
He is a soldier thorough— He boldly met and beat the foe
'Way down at Murfreesboro. The rebels tried to put him down,
Not liking his intrusion; But when he got to work, they soon
Skedaddled in confusion.
"While we sing, etc.
There is General Butler, too,
He proved he wasn't green, sir; He quickly settled things to rights
'Way down at New Orleans, sir. Though traitors raved, and vowed revenge,
And swore to give him thunder, He ruled them with an iron hand,         *
And quickly put them under.
While we sing, etc.
There is General Sigel, too,
He is one of the best, sir; The rebels don't admire him much—
They met him in the West, sir I And though they many a plan have laid,
And tried him to inveigle, The little Dutchman's wide awake—
A hunkey boy is Sigel.
While we sing, etc.
There's General Thomas Francis Meagher
A lasting fame has made, sir; In Freedom's cause he nobly led
His Irish bold brigade, sir. And Corcoran, too, is in the field.
His name shall live in story;                .
He'll lead his Irish Legion on
To victory and glory.
While we sing, etc.
