AIR -- 'Old Dan Tucker'

    D       G       D    (G)
A Psalm we don't object to sing
    D            A7      G
But uncle Sam is now the thing
    D               G   D       (G)
He cries, "For Polk and Dallas go"
D                   A7 G
And save Texas from Mexico

D                   G
Then Whigs clear the way,
      A               7      G    A7
Whigs give way 'tis freedom becks us
D                G
Whigs give way, 'tis freedom becks us
    A7               G          D
For Polk, for Dallas and young Texas

Sly Hal and Theodore so grand
Instead of gaining Sam more land
The'd sell each acre to the foe
And sell the people on it too

[From 'The Democratic Songster'. Sly Hal is Henry Clay, who skirted the issue of Texas annexation to avoid offending sectional interests. Theodore is Freligheysen]
