The Old Granite State
(Hutchinson Family)

We have come from the mountains,
We have come from the mountains,
We have come from the mountains,
     From the Old Granite State,
We're a band of brothers
We're a band of brothers
We're a band of brothers
     And we live among the hills.

cho: With a band of music
     With a band of music,
     With a band of music
     We are passing 'round the world.

We are all real Yankees, (3x)
     From the Old Granite State.
And by prudent guessing, (3x)
     We shall whittle through the world.

Liberty is our motto, (3x)
     In the Old Granite State,
We despise oppression,
     And we cannot be enslaved.

Yes we're friends of Emancipation *
And we'll sing the Proclamation
Till it echoes through our nation
    From the Old Granite State.
That the tribe of Jesse,
That the tribe of Jesse,
That the tribe of Jesse
    Are the friends of equal rights.

We are all Washingtonians,
Yes, we're all Washingtonians,
Heav'n bless the Washingtonians,
   Of the Old Granite State.
We are all teetotalers,
We are all teetotalers,
We are all teetotalers,
   And have signed the Temp'rance Pledge.

Now three cheers altogether
Shout Columbia's people ever
Yankee hearts none can sever,
  In the Old Sister States.
Like our Sires before us,
We will swell the chorus,
Till the Heavens o'er us
Shall resound the loud hussa.
  Hurrah! Hurrah! Hurrah!
This was the Hutchinson Family's theme song: They sang it for President
     Tyler in the White house in 1844 and opened every concert with it.
     Verse marked * is an obvious later addition.
From The American History Songbook, Silverman
