It was a deadly yellow fever epidemic
At first only a few were sick
And then it started raging bad
It was the worst this town has had
It was the summer of 1853
Only my dear old dad and me
Escaped alive
Escaped unscathed

Summer of 1853
The river reeked of mortality
Summer of 1853
The river reeked of mortality
It was a deadly yellow fever epidemic
