Maine Lumberjacks 159
6     Come on! brave l fellows, one and all!
The Red-coats ne'er shall say, The Yankees feared to meet them armed, So gave our land away.
7     We'll feed them well with ball and shot.
We'll cut these Red-coats down, Before we yield to them an inch Or title of our ground.
8     Ye Husbands, Fathers, Brothers, Sons,
From every quarter come! March, to the bugle and the fife! March, to the beating drum!
9     Onward! my Lads so brave and true
Our Country's right demands With justice, and with glory fight, For these Aroostook lands.
1 Misprinted brace.
