Colonel Alexander Campbell

Famous quotes containing the words colonel and/or campbell:

    The Colonel went out sailing,
    He spoke with Turk and Jew
    With Christian and with Infidel
    For all tongues he knew.
    “O what’s a wifeless man?” said he
    And he came sailing home.

    And we conquer but to save:—
    So peace instead of death let us bring:
