HAIL, JERUSALEM, HAIL.

Walk along John and my Aunt Sal.
Wandering through dis world;
Both lived down in Shin Bone Al,
Wandering through dis world.
Number on de gate and de number on de door.
Wandering through dis world;
Next one is a grocery store,
Wandering through dis world.

I'm a long time a wandering, wandering, oh, wandering,
I'm a long time a wandering, wandering through dis world;
For de rocks in de mountains am done gone passed away,
Oh, won't we have a good time, for we can't stay away.

Chorus.

Then hail, hail, hail, Jerusalem, hail,
Eh, h', eh, h', oh, my Lord,
Hail, Jerusalem, hail.
Then hail, hail, hail, Jerusalem, hail.
Eh', h', eh', h', shout good Lord,
Hail, Jerusalem, hail.

Look up yonder! what do I seer
Wandering through dis world;
A lot of black angels looking at me,
Wandering through dis world.
How much de mighty power I do feel,
Wandering through dis world;
Till along came Sal with tar on her heel,
Wandering through dis world.

I'm a long time a wandering, wandering, oh, wandering,
I'm a long time a wandering, wandering through dis world;
For de rocks in de mountains am done gone passed away,
Oh, won't we have a good time, for we can't stay away.
Then hail, hail, hail, Jerusalem, hail, &c.

I'll Never Have Her Back Again.
As sung by Jolly Nash.

My false wife she ran away from me
Some two or three week's ago.
And now she wants to come Back again.
Which is not right, you know;
Once hit, twice shy. is my reply.
And if it were to rain
Cats and dogs, mussels and frogs,
I'd not have her back again.

Chorus.
The birds may sing, the hells may ring
The fish in the sea remain;
The winds may blow, and she may go,
I'll never have her back again.

I'll tell you how she commenced the row.
One night I stayed out late,
She wanted to know where I had been.
And because I would not relate,
She ran away from me that night.
And unless I am insane.
If coals were to come to ten cents a ton,
I'd not have her back again.-Chorus.

No doubt she thought I should break my heart.
Or else go out of my mind.
But it is not so I would have you to know.
I never was that way inclined;
I loved her once, but now she has gone.
This I will maintain.
If mutton and lamb were cheaper than jam
I'd not have her back again.-Chorus

I've not any one now to kick up a row
When I return home late,
I sit at my ease, go to bed when I please.
I'm happy and proud to state;
No scolding wife to bother my life,
So simile I'll remain.
And if the fish in the seas were' to roost up on trees
I'd not have her back again. - Chorus.
