James K Polk

They Might Be Giants

 CG(BCF(ACGCF
In eighteen forty-four, the Democrats were split       
 CG(BCF(ACGCF
The three nominees for the presidential candidate       
 CGCFCFG-
Were Martin Van Buren, a former president and an abolitionist

James Buchanan, a moderate
 CFGAmDD(CD(BD(A
Louis Cass, a general and expansionist

From Nashville came a dark horse riding up
 CAmFGCFCG
He was James K. Polk, Napoleon of the Stump       

Verse 2:
Austere, severe, he held few people dear
His oratory filled his foes with fear
The factions soon agreed
He's just the man we need
To bring about victory
Fulfill our manifest destiny
And annex the land the Mexicans command
And when the votes were cast the winner was
Mister James K. Polk, Napoleon of the Stump

Bridge:
 CAmFGCFCG
Verse 3:
In four short years he'd met his every goal
He seized the whole southwest from Mexico
Made sure the tarriffs fell
And made the English sell the Oregon territory
He built an independent treasury
Having done all this he sought no second term
But precious few have mourned the passing of
Mister James K. Polk, our eleventh president
Young Hickory, Napoleon of the Stump
