7. Buonaparte
(public domain, arr. Uncle Earl/© 2006 Smokin' Granny Music, ASCAP)

This is a song from the American shape-note singing tradition. Published in 1855 in The Social Harp (hence the archaic spelling of the name “Buonaparte”), this is a three-part choral arrangement of a folk song that probably dates from shortly after Napoleon's death in 1821. – KA
