The formidable Truman line guards the approaches to the city, guns at the ready
Tenting tonight: most of the yankees are asleep, and will only wake up if the sentries sound the alarm
The confederates approach stealthily in the dead of night
The sentries walk about the perimeter, but they don't see anything amiss
One of them is even silently dispatched
Wait, what's that?
Johnny reb is here, sound the alarm!
A crashing southern volley anihilates the left union gun
Under fire, some confederates break and fall back
Now the entire federal line opens up a terrific fire
Wich is answered in kind by the enemy
