Battle Cry Of Freedom.

April 24, 2010

—George F. Root.

YES, we’ll rally ‘round the flag, boys, we’ll rally once again,
Shouting the battle-cry of freedom;
We will rally from the hillside, we’ll gather from the plain,
Shouting the battle-cry of freedom.
 
The Union forever, hurrah, boys, hurrah!
Down with the traitor, up with the star,
While we rally ‘round the flag, boys, rally once again,
Shouting the battle-cry of freedom.
 
We are springing to the call of our brothers gone before,
Shouting the battle-cry of freedom.
And we’ll fill the vacant ranks with a million freemen more,
Shouting the battle-cry of freedom.
 
The Union forever, hurrah, boys, hurrah!
Down with the traitor, up with the star,
While we rally ‘round the flag, boys, rally once again,
Shouting the battle-cry of freedom.
 
We will welcome to our numbers the loyal, true, and brave,
Shouting the battle-cry of freedom.
And altho’ they may be poor, not a man shall be a slave,
Shouting the battle-cry of freedom.
 
The Union forever, hurrah, boys, hurrah!
Down with the traitor, up with the star,
While we rally ‘round the flag, boys, rally once again,
Shouting the battle-cry of freedom.
 
So we’re springing to the call from the East and from the West,
Shouting the battle-cry of freedom,
And we’ll hurl the rebel crew from the land we love the best,
Shouting the battle-cry of freedom.
 
The Union forever, hurrah, boys, hurrah!
Down with the traitor, up with the star,
While we rally ‘round the flag, boys, rally once again,
Shouting the battle-cry of freedom.
