Subject: RE: Lyr Req: St. Claire was our commander
go into the forum, it's in there buried along with another song. Look for a thread on "Battle of Pea Ridge", same tune pretty much the same sorry just a different war. First verse went something like:

It was on March(?) the 7th in the year of 62
We had a sore ingagement with Abe Lincoln's crew
Van Dorn was our commander as you can plainly see
We lost 10,000 of our men in the Indian Territory.
