THE NAVASOTA VOLUNTEERS.
By Wi. Neely, of Durant's Cavalry. Air—" Susannna, Don't you Cry.'1''
We're the Navasota volunteers, our county is named Grimes; Oh, come along, my conscript boys, we can't leave 3rou behind; Jeff Davis is our President, and Stephens is the Vice— At the head of our armies are Lee, Beauregard and Price.
We have other officers and generals in command,
To lead our gallant forces on, and give the right command ;
Good old Magruder 's our choice, and will help the Yankees
roast; So come and go along with us, and help defend the coast.
O come along, my jolly boys, and help us all to fight— To go against old Uncle Abe I know that we are right; So come along, my countrymen, and with us take }rour stand ; With help of God, we'll whip old Abe, and all his Yankee band.
Come volunteer, my brave, brave boys, and help to fight it
out; We can whip the Abolitionists, without a single doubt; We are volunteers of Texas—we are the very chaps, To whip the Abolitionists, and stop their ''nutmeg" traps.
