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


The hits keep coming. Chattanooga News (May 28, 1913):

War Jingles, 1861-5

...

                      NOAH'S ARK
                   (Air:"Gideon's Band")

Old Noah he did build an Ark,
Old Noah he did build an Ark,
Old Noah He did build an Ark,
Of sassafras root and cinnamon bark


[Chorus:]
If you belong to the Rebel band,
Here's my heart and here's my hand,
If you belong to the Rebel band -
They're fighting for our rights.

The animals come in by two,
The animals come in by two,
The animals come in by two,
The long-tailed 'possum and the kangaroo.

[Chorus]

Keep your shoes upon your feet,
Keep your shoes upon your feet,
Keep your shoes upon your feet,
So you can walk in the golden street.

[Chorus]

Oh, ladies do the best you can,
Oh, ladies do the best you can,
Oh, ladies do the best you can,
And never marry a Yankee man.

[Chorus]
