THE YEAR OF JUBILEE.
189
Governor Sprague was not very vague,
When he said, " Shoulder Arms ! Little Rhody."
Let traitors look out, for there's never a doubt
That Uncle Abe's army will trip 'em; And as for the loud Carolinian crowd, Rhode Island, alone, sir, can whip 'em!
Loyal and true little Rhody ! Bully for you ! little Rhody ; Governor Sprague is a very good egg, And worthy to lead little Rhody !
THE YEAR OF JUBILEE.
Q AY, darkies, hab you seen de massa,
Wid de muffstash on his face, Go 'long de road some time dis mornin,*
Like he 's going to leave de place ? He seen de smoke way up de ribber Where de Lincum gunboats lay ; He took his hat and left berrv sudden, And I 'spose he's runned away. De massa run, ha! ha !
De darkey stay, ho ! ho ! It mus' be now de kingdum comin,' An' de yar ob Jubilo.
