Click here to listen to the original recording
To drive all the Rebels right where they belong.
Chorus: And I'll raise a Union band
to make the Rebels understand
To leave our land or submit to Uncle Sam.
I had a little gun and I called it Number One:
Shot eleven-pound bum, and I'll slam as they come.
I had a little gun, and I called it Number Two.
Hurr-o, Abe, we'll put the Rebels through.
I had a little gun and I called it Number Three,
Hurr-o, Abe, we'll set the nigger free.
There's old General Rose Scott; he's got the day sot
To march down to Murfreesboro to see the Rebel trot.
We'll march down to Wildcat to see a little fun;
We'll march down to Wildcat to see the Rebels run.
(Mr. Sutterfield: "I learned this song from Pensin Taylor. He lived, at that time, at Leslie, Arkansas, about fifty years ago. I call it 'The Little Rebel Song.'")
