THE BAY STATE HURRAH.
Am—" Hurrah Song.97
Fremont's the chief to lead the way,
Hurrah ! hurrah ! hurrah ! The fire by night—the cloud by day,
Hurrah ! hurrah ! hurrah ! Mailed in truth and strong in hand, He'll bring us to the Promised Land.
Hurrah ! hurrah ! hurrah ! hurrah !
Hurrah ! hurrah ! hurrah !
The Ship of State, with tattered sail,
Hurrah ! hurrah ! hurrah ! Is madly driving 'fore the gale,
Hurrah ! hurrah ! hurrah ! He'll soon repair her crippled form, And bring her safely through the storm,
Hurrah ! &c.
The sable flag that o'er her waves,
Hurrah ! hurrah ! hurrah ! Shall float no longer over slaves,
Hurrah ! hurrah ! hurrah ! And not forgetting Buck and Breck, He'll sweep the pirates from her deck.
Hurrah ! &c.
But Freedom's stars and stripes shall wave,
Hurrah ! hurrah ! hurrah ! Above the foe and o'er the brave,
Hurrah ! hurrah ! hurrah ! From Kansas' dark and bloody ground, To California's farthest bound.
Hurrah ! &c.
Free Speech, Fremont, will aye defend,
Hurrah ! hurrah ! hurrah ! And Slavery's curse he'll ne'er extend,
Hurrah ! hurrah ! hurrah !
