SONG FOR THE ILLINOIS VOLUNTEERS. 87
The maids and wives
That light our lives With deep, enduring splendor —
We '11 give no cheer
For those so dear, But in our hearts we '11 bless them,
And pray to-night,
That angels bright May watch them and caress them.
For we 're the boys
That hearts desthroys, Wid making love and fighting;
We take a fort,
The girls we court, But most the last delight in.
SONG FOR THE ILLINOIS VOLUNTEERS.
BY " AGNES."
WE are nobles of the Prairie, and we come, and we come,
To fight for Law and Liberty, and our dear prairie-home ; No craven hearts, or coward hands, are numbered in our ranks,
