Jack Morgan is his name—the fearless and the lucky; No dastard foe can tame the son of old Kentucky. His heart is with his State, he fights for Southern freedom, His men their General's word await—they'll go where he will lead 'em.
Chorus.
He swore to free his home—to hurst her chains asunder, With sound of trump and drum, and loud Confederate
thunder ; And in the darksome night, hy light of homesteads huming, He'll put the skulking foe to flight, their hearts to wailings
turning.
Chorus.
The dungeon dark and cold could not his body prison, Nor tame a spirit hold that o'er reverse had risen. Then sing the song of joy—our toast he lovely woman; And Morgan, he's the gallant boy to plague the hated foeman !
Mississippi Button.
