Columbian Tars.

Columbian tars are hearts of oak
Singing ever merrily;
Ev'n in fight they laugh and joke,
Meeting danger cheerily
Yo, yo, yea;
Fire away,
Hearts of oak, right merrily.

And, tho' death around him flies
Still the dauntless sailor cries,

104

Spunge the guns, boys, merrily
Ram the balls home, cheerily,
Yo, yo, yea;
Fire away,
Hearts of oak, right merrily.

Wrapt in clouds of thickest smoke,
Hear him singing merrily;
Fearless still, he'll have his joke,
Braving peril cheerily;
E'en amidst the hottest fight,
Hear him singing with delight,
Spunge the guns, boys, &.
