I'll sing you a little song And I'll think it nothing wrong To drive all the rebels Right where they belong; Refrain: And we'll raise a Union band To make the rebels understand, To leave our land Or to 'mit to Uncle Sam. Well, I had a little gun And I called it Number One, Shot a 'leven-pound bumb, And I'll play 'em as they come. (Refrain) I had a little gun And I called him Number Two, Hurry, Old Abe, We'll put the rebels through. (Refrain) I had a little gun And I called it Number Three, Hurry, Old Abe, We'll set the nigger free. (Refrain) Reel 225, Item 1, con't Now there's old General Wolfe. Trot us out the brave slot (?)
