Liberty Cabin Raising

Song performed by: Chad Sheridan, Jason Schreiber (vocals) and Tara Dirst (banjo). Recording engineer: Matt Dotson.

[Sung at the Log Cabin Raising, Anapolis.]

TUNE --- "Rosin the Bow."

Come on ye firm Whigs of old Crawford
And all ye true democrats too,
Come up --- for old Liberty's raising,
A Cabin for Tippecanoe.

There you'll find many raisers from Whetstone
And a few from Sandusky too,
For the people's determined on raising
A Cabin for Tippecanoe.

Bucyrus will furnish her twenties,
And Chatfield her dozen or two,
And Cranberry 'll help at the raising,
A Cabin for Tippecanoe.

Holmes claims a share in the building
Which she had a good right to do;
And she'll send up her hands to the raising
A Cabin for Tippecanoe.

And when we have finish'd the building
We'll call for one speech or two,
From those who have help'd at the raising
A Cabin for Tippecanoe.
