WHO’S PRICE A-FIGHTING?
(THE PEA RIDGE BATTLE)
Sung by: Neal Morris
Recorded in Mountain View, AR 9/9/61
Click here to listen to the original recording
With a horse with a sweeping pace,
And when he heard of McCulloch's death,
The tears rolled down his face.
Chorus: Who’s Price a-fighting?
Somebody, I do know.
It surely is the Federals,
For I hear their cannons roar.
Well, he jumped stumps and scattered fence,
All day he did not dread,
For all the lay upon his mind
Was a little lump of lead.
