THE SAME OLD TUNE.

AIR --- Vive la Companie.
Song performed by: Chad Sheridan and Jason Schreiber (vocals). Recording engineer: Matt Dotson.

Come join in a shout for the name we love best!
Hurrah for Henry Clay!
The friend of the People --- the man of the West ---
Hurrah for Henry Clay!

CHO. --- We'll give them a touch of that same old tune,
We'll give them a sight of that same old coon;
They'll see him again by the light of the moon
Hurrah for Henry Clay!

He's trusty as steel to his word and his friend!
Hurrah for Henry Clay!
Though they tried to subdue him he never would bend,
Hurrah for Henry Clay!

We'll give them a touch, &c.

They tell me that Van is a nice little man,
Hurrah for Henry Clay!
But we gave him a dressing the last time he ran ---
Hurrah for Henry Clay!

We'll give them a touch, &c.

Here's a health to our statesman, our champion and friend,
Hurrah for Henry Clay!
He fought from the first and he'll fight to the end ---
Hurrah for Henry Clay!

We'll give them a touch, &c.

Come join in the chorus as loud as you can,
Hurrah for Henry Clay!
And whenever they hear it, they'll tremble for Van ---
Hurrah for Henry Clay!

We'll give them a touch of the same old tune ---
We'll give them a sight of the same old coon ---
We'll see him again by the light of the moon!
Hurrah for Henry Clay!
