Lydia Puckett

 Knowlt Hoheimer ran away to the war
The day before Curl Trenary
Swore out a warrant through Justice Arnett
For stealing hogs.
But that's not the reason he turned a soldier.
He caught me running with Lucius Atherton.
We quarreled and I told him never again To cross my path.
Then he stole the hogs and went to the war -- Back of every soldier is a woman.
