William McCarty, comp.  The American National Song Book.  1842.
Two Stanzas: ‘Cornwallis led a country-dance’
Of a ballad much sung during the Revolution

CORNWALLIS led a country-dance;
  The like was never seen, sir;
Much retrograde and much advance,
  And all with General Greene, sir.
They rambled up and rambled down,        5
  Join’d hands, and off they ran, sir;
Our General Greene to Charleston,
  And the earl to Wilmington, sir.
