BAY-STATE SONG.
We have left the plough and anvil,
Left the ledger and the loom ; Our shares to swords are beaten,
And our pen 's the pen of doom. But we '11 plough a deeper furrow,
And we '11 deal a heavier blow, And upon the Nation's ledger
We will strike the balance now. To the frav, &c.
Lay the rails and build the engines,
O'er the stream the bridges throw ; These are little Yankee notions,
Yankees carry as they go. To the friends we leave behind us
Oft we pledge a hearty health, And one prayer to God we offer,
Save the good old Commonwealth I To the fray, &c.
See an Adams and an Otis
Look from heaven to speed us on ! Hear a Warren and a Prescott
Bid us keep the fields they won! See again Virginia's Patriot
Rise to bid Disunion stand !
