A new Song this is of the great Ulysses.
Who leads on our armies so great and grand;—
To the admiration of all the Nation,
He's fighting for Peace in our native land!
We've Generals so many, but there isnt any
That like General Grant can turn the flanks
Of the stubborn Rebels, and rout the devils,
And their Jeff Davis's ragged ranks!
Fort Donelson's story proclaims his glory,—
And Vicksburgh before him had to fall;
The foe at Shiloh, he compelled to lie low,
And the Wilderness echoed his cannon ball!
He caused emotion, with the great explosion,
When Petersburg Rebels his prowess saw;
Now, with Richmond before him, and our bright flag o'er him,
For Freedom and Union still his sword he'll draw!
He's no great talker—but an awful balker
Of the deep laid schemings of General Lee;
And if there is any one, can end this Rebellion,
Sure Ulysses Grant must that soldier be!
Then hurrah! for the General, and cheers for his men who're al
Determined never to retire or yield,
Whatsoe'er befalls him, while his Country calls him,
Or a single Rebel shall contest the field!
