To Sauerwein

Line
Melody - "My Maryland", June, 1862
Line

By a member of the Baltimore Corn Exchange, 1862

The Union men have left the floor,
Sauerwein! Poor "Sour Wine!"
They will vote you soon a horrid bore;
Sauerwein! Poor "Sour Wine!"
Is not the subject rather sore?
You Union men of Baltimore
Will rob the rich and grind the poor;
Sauerwein! Poor "Sour Wine!"
2. I see the knave upon thy cheek,
Sauerwein! Poor "Sour Wine!"
I know you're both cowardly and weak;
Sauerwein! Poor "Sour Wine!"
In crushing each Secession freak,
In spite of U. S. contracts sleek,
You prove yourself a Yankee sneak;
Sauerwein! Poor "Sour Wine!"
3. I kinder guess you think you're some,
Sauerwein! Poor "Sour, Wine!"
But, " Pete," you ought to go to hum;
Sauerwein! Poor "Sour Wine!"
When in the new Exchange you come,
Surrounded by your Northern scum,
Oh! won't you strike Secession dumb:
Sauerwein! Poor "Sour Wine!"
