There's wine and cider in de cellar, And de darkies dey'll have some;
I speck it will be confiscated, When de Lincum soldiers come.
Chorus.
De overseer will give us trouble,
And run us round a spell; We'll lock him up in smoke-house cellar.
Wid de key thrown in de well. De whip is lost, and de handcuffs broken,
And massa '11 lose his pay; He's big enough and old enough,
Dan to gone and runned away.
Chorus.
SONG OF HOOKER'S PICKET.
Southern Illustrated News, Feb. 21st, 1863.
I'm 'nation tired of being hired To fight for a shillin' a day;
Richmond to gain I'll hev to strain, And travel some other way.
Darn Ole Abe and Ole Jeff Dave !
Darn the day I 'listed ! When I came down to this 'ere town,
Jerushy! how I missed it.
