Lost Hopes.

TUNE --- "The Last Rose of Summer."
Song performed by: Chad Sheridan (vocals) and Tara Dirst (banjo). Recording engineer: Matt Dotson.

'Tis the last Loco Foco
Left weeping alone;
All his loafer companions
Are vanished and gone.

No old friend is near him,
No Conservative nigh,
To muse on his sorrows,
Or give sigh for sigh.

We must leave thee, thou lone one,
In Tammany Hall,
Till Moore and Cambreling
The people recall.

Soon Martin will follow,
His friendship's decay;
From the White House departing,
His hopes pass away.

Since the party is withered,
Its leaders all gone,
Oh who would inhabit
Saint Tammany alone.
