General Gates gave up his fight Before gathering his troops he fled

Because in Camden on that night American blood was shed

The command of those troops was given to Greene

These times for him were hard

Soldiers' wounds were not kept clean. His hopes and men were scarred

More troops from Southern states were added to these men

Greene divided his army in half And somehow outsmarted Cornwallis then!

Cornwallis knew that he'd been beat So later retreated and faced defeat

But British had come up with a plan

And chased Greene and his men to the Dan

The Americans swiftly crossed first

The river looked about to burst

The British got to the river to find That they were simply left behind

And once again had they been beat And suffered and faced defeat

We owe a lot to Greene's strategy And him and his men's victory!
