SONG FOR THE ILLINOIS VOLUNTEERS. 87
The maids and wives
That light our lives With deep, enduring splendor
We '11 give no cheer
For those so dear, But in our hearts we '11 bless them,
And pray to-night,
That angels bright May watch them and caress them.
For we 're the boys
That hearts desthroys, Wid making love and fighting;
We take a fort,
The girls we court, But most the last delight in.
SONG FOR THE ILLINOIS VOLUNTEERS.
BY " AGNES."
WE are nobles of the Prairie, and we come, and we come,
To fight for Law and Liberty, and our dear prairie-home ; No craven hearts, or coward hands, are numbered in our ranks,
