Ratification Song

Hark! it thunders from the mountains,
And pours down through all their fountains;
Yea! it reaches the tall fountains
    Of far off Mexico.

     We're a band of soldiers,
     We're a band of soldiers,
     We're a band of soldiers,
     And our leader's name is Scott.
     With his banner streaming,
     And our weapons gleaming,
     And fresh glory beaming,
     We are fighting as he fought.

He is mighty in the battle,
And, 'mid war's iron rattle,
Drives the foe like frightened cattle,
    Before his conquering march.

     With his band of soldiers,
     With his band of soldiers,
     With his band of soldiers,
     He has won his mighty fame.
     Hurra! hurra!! hurra!!!
     Hurra! hurra!! hurra!!!
     Then, 'mid banners streaming,
     And old weapons gleaming,
     We see glory beaming
     Round our Hero's honored name.

Printed in Lawrence, Music for Patriots, Politicians, and Presidents
from 1852 campaign for General Winfield Scott, known as "Old Fuss
   and Feathers,"  hero of Mexican War
Tune.-The Old Granite State.
