NOTES [54 words]: There are two traditional songs entitled "Rally, Boys, Rally" -- one from Mississippi, printed in Hudson; one from Tennessee, printed by Wolfe from Boswell's Tennessee collection. Both are very short, so it is possible that they are one song -- but the only words they have in common are the line "Rally, Boys, Rally." - RBW
