Lighter Origin: Gideon's Band (Al Hopkins & Buckle Busters (38) RE: Origin: Gideon's Band (Al Hopkins & Buckle Busters 18 Jan 21


And again, from W. L. Fagan's "Southern war songs:
camp-fire, patriotic and sentimental" (1889):


                           THE REBEL BAND.

Old Eve she did the apple eat,
Old Eve she did the apple eat,
Old Eve she did the apple eat,
And smacked her lips and called it sweet.

CHORUS. Do you belong to the rebel band,
Fighting for your home.

There was a time, the poets say,
There was a time, the poets say,
There was a time, the poets say,
When this world was washed away.

CHORUS.

How old Noah built him an ark,
How old Noah built him an ark,
How old Noah built him an ark,
Of gopher wood and hickory bark.

CHORUS.

The ark rested on Mount Ararat,
The ark rested on Mount Ararat,
The ark rested on Mount Ararat,
A mile and a half from Manassas Gap.

CHORUS.

The animals came in two by two,
The animals came in two by two,
The animals came in two by two,
The camamile and the kangaroo.

CHORUS.

Now old Noah got very drunk,
Now old Noah got very drunk,
Now old Noah got very drunk,
And old Ham pulled him out of his bunk.

CHORUS.

Old Noah got mad as he could be,
Old Noah got mad as he could be,
Old Noah got mad as he could be,
And sent old Ham to Afrikee.

CHORUS.
