Jimmy Polk Of Tennessee

This song is by Oscar Brand and appears on the album Presidential Campaign Songs 1789-1996 (1999).

Ev'ry day brings something new
The locofocoes find it true
Strange events have proved to Martin
Doubtful things are most unsartin

Hark, the people rising say
He's the man to cope with Clay
Ha ha, such a nominee
Jimmy Polk of Tennessee!

His choice occasioned some surprise
Good democrats rolled up their eyes
Oh, asking, "Tell us, who is he,
James K. Polk of Tennessee?"

Hark, the people rising say
He's the man to cope with Clay
Ha ha, such a nominee
Jimmy Polk of Tennessee!

But soon their vast excitement o'er
They see what ne'er was seen before
The best selection that could be
Ex-Speaker Polk of Tennessee!

Hark, the people rising say
He's the man to cope with Clay
Ha ha, such a nominee
Jimmy Polk of Tennessee!

Fall down before a better man
Than even little Matty Van
Buchanan, too, must bow his knee
To James K. Polk of Tennessee!

Hark, the people rising say
He's the man to cope with Clay
Ha ha, such a nominee
Jimmy Polk of Tennessee!
