Pennsylvania Song

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

AIR --- Rosin the Beau.

Ye friends of the Keystone awaken,
And rally the Locos to flight;
Tennessee Polk is forsaken ---
They cannot on Muhlie unite.

When drive near to desperation,
Old Markle the brave, good and true,
Did mortgage his farm for the nation,
To march with old Tippecanoe.

Huzza for the "Old Indian killer,"
Huzza for the "third Washington,"
As call'd by an old Loco sinner,
Who sneer'd at the laurels he won.

They stigmatize Markle "a butcher,"
And call him an old "granny too,"
'Twas such an old granny and butcher,
They found in old Tippecanoe,

Arouse then ye Minstrels and readers,
And speakers, for Markle and Clay,
With CLAY and old MARKLE for leaders.
The Whigs will sure carry the day.
