Don't you hear me now?/The Black horse calverns are coming/The ladies in the town, they think they're mighty gown/The hoopskirts they are a-flowing/It takes 40 yards of alapac to cover up the hoops/and to cover up the happy land of money." Verse: "When the war is ended the boys will see their fun/They'll march through the South with their ladies/I'll march mine through some Southern Union clime/And I'll raise me some little Union babies"
