FREMONT AND FREEDOM.
AirDid you never hear of the Farmer"
On to the rescue,—Freemen bold—
A fearless band are we : We'll raise the song, and strike the chord
That sounds for liberty.
Chorus—Ho ! Ho ! for Freedom, Free Debate, Free Labor and Fremont! The ballot box shall save the State, And silence every taunt.
O'er high Nevada's snowy cliffs,
Our crested eagles soar ; And on the Rocky Mountain sit,
Or fly from shore to shore—
Chorus—Ho ! Ho ! for Freedom, &c.
Land of the brave, home of the free,
Freedom thy aid implores ; Away, away with Slavery
From these our peaceful shores—
Chorus—Ho ! Ho ! for Freedom, &c.
The time's at hand, the day is fixed,
November fourth will show, This band of border ruffians
From Washington must go.
Chorus—Ho ! Ho ! for Freedom, &c.
Now Fremont, he is in the field, He's Freedom's long-tried friend,
Let freemen rally 'round their chief, Whose fame shall never end.
Chorus—Ho! Ho ! for Freedom, &c.
