The postman came on the first of May…

The postman came on the first of May.
The policeman came the very next day.
Nine months later, there was hell to pay.
Who fired the shot, the blue or the gray.

Variant:
A policeman came to the door one day,
The mail man came and went away,
Nine months there was hell to pay,
Now who was to blame the blue or the gray
