ONE WIDE RIVER TO CROSS.
Copyright, 1877, by G H. Moulton & Co.

We'll chase the devil around the Stump,
There's one wide river to cross!
We'll chase the devil around the stump,
There's one wide river to cross!

CHORUS.
One wide river, one wide river to cross:
One wide river, one wide river to cross!

When duty calls us to the field,
The order we'll obey;
If to defend our native land.
We'll mingle in the fray.-Chorus.

And by our camp-fires burning bright
We'll have a jolly spree;
We'll tell our jokes and sing our songs.
And laugh and shout with glee.-Chorus.

I love to hear the stirring drum,
The cannon's booming roar;
To he a soldier is my joy,
I ask for nothing more.-CHORUS.

And when our battles all are o'er,
A joyous place to come .
To meet our comrades side by side.
It is the "soldiers' home." -Chorus.

We'll float together, we'll float together,
There's one wide river to cross!
We'll float together we'll float together,
There's one wide river to cross!-Chorus.
