4          "SHOOT HIM ON THE SPOT."
"SHOOT HIM ON THE SPOT." A NATIONAL SONG. BY WILLIAM ROSS WALLACE. I.
WHEN Rebellion's impious hand Darkened o'er the loyal land, Threatening its old flag unfurled, Like a star-burst for the world Well our Dix, the firm-souled, cried, From the mountain to the tide,
" lie who first that flag would lower,
"Shoot him on the spot!"
ii.
Hark ! from yonder billow red, Where devoted Lawrence bled ; From the hill where Warren's blade Freedom's sacred host arrayed ; From the tomb Potomac laves ; From ten thousand martyr-graves, Voices join that holy cry
"Shoot him on the spot!"
