UNCLE SAM GRANT.                               69
Should they never return, this poor heart would soon wither, And never know joy or comfort again.
Chorus. I am lonely to-night, I am lonely to-night,
While the stars sweetly shine upon all I hold dear; I am lonely, I am lonely to-night.
I am lonely to-night4 but ere spring-birds shall warble
Their matinal song in the wild forest-tree, And the bright, limpid brook with sweet music shall bubble—
.My heart will grow lighter when thinking of thee. Then fleet by, dull hours, and bring back the loved ones,
Who parted from friends With a tear-moistened eye ; For then this sad heart will no longer be lonely,
But joyous and happy as the mild azure sky.
I am lonely to-night, etc.
UNCLE SAM GRANT.
Performed, with shouts of laughter and applause, by Hooley's Min­strels.
I suppose you have heard of the great commander— He's second to none but Alexander;
U. S. G-.'s the man for me,
Three cheers for your Uncle Sam! He's come from the West, with the spangled banner— A mud-sill, and his trade a tanner;
Good-by, Chase 1 you'll lose the race,
He can distance Abraham !
Chortcs.
U stands for Uncle, U. S. for Uncle Sam,
But U. S. G. it just suits me, or any other man!
He dug a trench at Vicksburg: as sure as you're alive,
He'll dig one more round the White-House door in 1865
