Notes: Note from George Ward: The song is from a broadside in the New York State Library collection at Albany. It is a pretty crude bit of writing, as broadsides were more often than not. I've changed the order of the verses (and cut one or two) to make it singable. I haven't added anything. I can't put my hands on the whole text right now. So I'm afraid you've got to trust my editing. No author is given, neither is a date, nor is the printer named.
