Miss Fritchie

from I Rode Fido Home

There's a hush on the streets of Frederick today
(Stonewall's army is on its way)
There's a hush on the streets of Frederick today
(Stonewall's army is on its way)
A hush on the streets of Frederick today
(Stonewall's army is on its way)

The Union boys are on the retreat
(mighty Barbara is on her feet)
The Union boys are on the retreat
(mighty Barbara is on her feet)
The Union boys are on the retreat
(mighty Barbara is on her feet)

oh-oh Miss Fritchie is talking loud
oh-oh she'll do ol' Betsy proud

And when the grey go marching by
(you'll see her banner marching high)
And when the grey go marching by
(you'll see her banner marching high)
And when the grey go marching by
(you'll see her banner marching high)

Chorus

You can let your cannons sound
You won't silence my hometown
I know my land I know my side
So look at me 'cause I won't hide

And then General Jackson said
(whoever lays a hand on her head)
And then General Jackson said
(whoever lays a hand on her head)
And then General Jackson said
(will sure by my sword, go home dead)

Chorus
