WAR-SONG OF THE ESSEX CADETS. 67
WAR-SONG OF THE ESSEX CADETS.*
WHERE gallant Buxton leads the way, His company so true Shall follow to the battle-field And shout their wild halloo.
Halloo ! halloo ! halloo ! my boys,
For Buxton leads the way ; Our hearts are free, and true is he, And we must win the day.
And Buxton, though in stature small,
In heart is stout and brave ; We love him and we '11 follow him Till we meet a soldier's grave; Or till sweet victory shall crown
Our banner of the free; Hurrah ! hurrah ! for Buxton then, Hurrah for victory.
Then come our brave Lieutenants, who
Inspire us with true hope, The second's valiant Taggard, and
The first is noble Pope ;
* Massachusetts Volunteers.
