Words to first verse and chorus read, “In the prison cell I sit, Thinking Mother dear, of you, And our bright and happy home so far away, and the tears they fill my eyes spite of all that I can do, Tho’ I try to cheer my comrades and be gay. Tramp, tramp, tramp, the boys are marching, cheer up comrades they will come, And beneath the starry flag We shall breathe the air again, Of the freeland in our own beloved home.” Two more verses follow.

Measures 9 ¼” x 13”. Yellowing has occurred, with areas of spotting, and one very small tear at the bottom left of the front cover.  [Sl]
