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

And this, from the Eastern Intelligencer (Washington, N.C.) (Aug. 24, 1869), p. 1. It refers to the Civil War:

O stick your toe-nails in the ground -
Stick your toe-nails in the ground;
That when you're dead you may be found!

If you belong to the rebel band,
If you belong to Dixie's land;
O, here's my heart and here's my hand,
We are fighting for our homes.

O keep your hat upon your head -
Keep your hat upon your head,
For you won't want it when you are dead.


Oh, keep your shoes upon your feet -
Keep your shoes upon your feet,
For you will want them in retreat.
