Ultra RARE sheet music from 1847 related to the Mexican American War 'A Little More Grape Captain Bragg". Great graphics - P S Duval Lith Phiadelphis. A NATIONAL SONG Composed % respectfully dedicated to GENERAL ZACHERY TAYLOR by Wm. J. Lemon
THE old hero stands on teh brow of the hill, With his heart in the thick of the fray, Where his squadrons beneath him are batling still, On the eve of that terrible day. His quick eye has numbered the mustering bands, And he points to the enemy'f Flag, White the battery answers the old mans command, " A little more grape, Captain Bragg"
The foe man charge home with a thundering shock, And a touch of Castillian pride; They dash on our lines like a wave on the rock, When the storm is abroad on the tide; The wave falleth back but the rock standeth still. There is heat in that bristling crag - And the old man stands yet on the brow of the hill " A little more grape, Captain Bragg."
Then spke the loud annon- it thunders again, Like spirits they scream on the air, == And the fallen are lying in swaths on the plain Deaths busisest reapers are there - now is the song of those death reapers still, Yet let not our battle song lag, Hurrah! to the old man that stood on the hill, And "A liitle more grape, Captain Bragg."
