MARCHING THROUGH GEORGIA.
Key of A. Bring the good old bugle, boys! we will sing another song; Sing it with a spirit that will start the world along— Sing it as we used to sing it. fifty thousand strong, While we were marching through Georgia.
Chorus.—"Hurrah! hurrah! we bring the jubilee!
Hurrah! hurrah! the flag that makes you free!" So we sang the chorus from Atlanta to the sea, While we were marching through Georgia.
How the darkeys shouted when the}' heard the joyful sound ! How the turkeys gobbled which our commissary found! How the sweet potatoes, even, started from the ground
While we were marching through Georgia.
Chorus.—"Hurrah! hurrah! we bring the Jubilee! etc.
Yes; and tnere were Union men who wept with joyful tears When they saw the honored flag they had not seen for years; Hardly could the}' be restrained from breaking forth in cheers
While we were marching through Georgia.
Chorus.—"Hurrah! hurrah! we bring the Jubilee! etc.
"Sherman's dashing Yankee boys will never reach the coast!" So the saucy rebels said, and 't was a handsome boast, Had thev not forgot, alas! to reckon on a host,
While we were marching through Georgia.
Chorus.—"Hurrah! hurrah! we bring the Jubilee! etc.
So we made a thoroughfare for Freedom and her train— Sixty miles in latitude, three hundred to the main; Treason fled before us. for resistance was in vain,
While we were marching through Georgia.
Chorus.—"Hurrah! hurrah! we bring the Jubilee! etc.
