312 HOW ARE YOU, GENERAL LEE?
"Not much, I think" says General Lee, " No whis­key 's there, indeed;
What makes me feel so giddy is, I've taken too much Meade ! "
Chorus — How are you, General ? &c.
"But you seem ill, yourself, dear Jeff. You look
quite sad enough ; I think, while I 've been gone, Old Abe has used
you rather rough." " Well, yes, he has, and that's a fact; it makes me
feel downcast, For they 've bothered us at Vicksburg, so 't is
Granted them at last." Chorus— Then, how are you, Jeff. Davis ? What is it makes you sigh ? How are your friends at Vicksburg and in Mississippi—i ?
" Yes, Vicksburg they have got quite sure, and
Richmond soon they '11 take ; At Port Hudson, too, they have some Banks I fear
we cannot break : While Rosecrans, in Tennessee, swears he '11 our
army flog, And prove if Bragg 's a terrier good, Holdfast's a
belter dog."
