THE HARD-BACK FAMILY.
Copyright, 1879, by Louis P. Goullaud.

I went to see my girl one night,
She was there when I arrived,
I'm getting along fast in love, you bet,
It is a great surprise;
I asked her for her coal-black hand,
Be mine forever more,
I tell you de family flew at me,
And chased me from de door;
I'm going away to leave you,
I can't stop on de way.
Clear de track, and don't pester me,
For I can no longer stay.

Chorus.

I'll drive de gospel engine,
I'll drive her through de land,
Swing on de golden chariot,
In that far off happy land.-(Dance).

I took my love to de engine house,
To see de fire machine,
Her hair flew back on de top of her head,
She looked like a Dutch May queen;
Her dress was white, and her smile was bright,
Her figure gaunt and lean;
She-was brigadier gen'ral of a market store,
Sold hammers, turtle and cream.
I'm going away to leave you,
I can't stop on de way,
Clear de track, and don't pester me,
For I can no longer stay.-Chorus.
