A Bumper Around Now, My Hearties.


Song performed by: Chad Sheridan, Jason Schreiber (vocals) and Tara Dirst (banjo). Recording engineer: Matt Dotson.

Tune -- "Old Rosin the Bow."

A BUMPER around now, my hearties,
I'll sing you a song that is new;
I'll please, to the buttons, all parties,
And sing of Old Tippecanoe.


When first near the Thames' gentle waters,
My sword for my country I drew,
I fought for America's daughters,
Long-side of Old Tippecanoe.

Ere this too when dangers assail'd us,
And Indians their dread missiles threw,
His counsel and courage avail'd us;
We conquer'd at Tippecanoe.

And now that the good of the nation
Requires that something we do,
We'll hurl little Van from his station,
And elevate Tippecanoe.

Again and again fill your glasses,
Bid Martin Van Buren adieu;
We'll please ourselves and the lasses,
And vote for Old Tippecanoe.
