GUEST,Margaret Lyr Req: Comic song about end of slavery in USA (6) Lyr Req: Comic song about end of slavery in USA 13 Oct 18


My associations for the song (they may all be imaginary) are the word "jubilee", Stephen Foster, and the tune to the White Cockade.

The song is a comic one about soon-to-be-free Black people celebrating while White overseers and slave owners run away because the "boys in blue" (northern army) are coming.

Does that ring a bell for anyone?
