Two books that I have that include supposed revolutionary era songs, (one by Jerry Silverman, 1994 and one byIrwin Silber, 1973) both credit Allison with the music. One of them says as sung by John Allison. 5 other books with similar material, including a couple of older ones, do not include the song. So maybe it was a poem that was printed in a local paper or a braodside that was never actually sung contemporaneously.
