Answer to the Answer of
JJopies of all three of the Sod Shanty; Songs free
x by addressing- Weld Bros., Colby.
V I." I'm notio jkinij half so seedj since I made va.y fin-al proof.
And iny bill of fare is not now quite so tame, "
And ihouirh Sal gave me the 'mitten." I am more than satisfied,
"WithJ-my little ofd sod shanty and nry claim.
I lead her letter o'er and o'er, it made me feel quite sad,
For I never thought he was up to such a game,
But I'm as happy"now as ever as I lay me clown to rest,
In my little old sod shanty on the claim.
Choi:i: O, I've made my final proof. I'm happy as a clam,
And I'm on the road to wealth if not to fame.
I wonder if alis Sally don't wish she'd stuck to Sam,
And his little old sod'shant- on the claim.
2. The other day a railroad man came looking 'round this way,
And in private slyly took me 13' the arm,
"We are going to fun a line across the country here," said he,
"And we want to build a town upon 'our farm,"
The bargain is completed ond lots are .selling fast,
And the place is not now looking just the same.
I've lots of "tin" and soon will build a splendid brown stone front,
Just beside my old sod shanty on the claim.
. Xo doubt she would be happ' now to make the sacrifice,
Since 'she finds that these wealth" men do not piopose.
And those buggy 'tides grow scarcer while she's growing up in years,
And ller cheeks their wonted tint begin to lose.
But since I have commuted, I'm happy and I'm gay,
And of couise I've sought me out another fiamc
And she's not afraid ofcoming down to binning twisted hay,
In 1113- little old od shanty on the claim.
4. Although my new found tie.isure nuiy spend my read' cash.
And may make me toe the maik when she'gets mad,"
Vet an Indian miss would haidly suit my elevated views,
And I'd hate to have a half-bieed call me "dad."
Now if Sal does not want to be the mother to my heir.
She will have no one else except heiself to blame.
For these piahics are piolific and she'd better stay away,
And leave Sam in his shantv on the claim.
