Battle of Bull Run
This day will be remembered by America's loyal sons
If it hadn't been for Irishmen, what would our Union done?
"Twas hand to hand we fought 'em, all in the broilin' sun.
Stripped to the pants we did advance at the Battle of Bull Run.
(collected by Frank Warner, Electra No3, from John Galusha)
note: This, for the record, is straight. The (first) Battle of Bull
Run was fought in high summer in Virginia. It was *hot.*AH
