76                    BAY-STATE SONG.
See the shade of Monticello Strike again at Treason's hand! To the fray, &c.
Forward, then, the Pine-tree banner !
Still, as in our fathers' day, Where her country's need is greatest,
Massachusetts leads the way ! By our brothers' blood still crying
From the streets of Baltimore, Let the foe who struck behind them,
Be struck down forevermore. To the fray, &c.
Now, the Stars and Stripes forever
Be he cursed, each traitor-son, Who assails the starry banner, And the Hag of Washington ! For Mount Vernon's sacred ashes
Will not rest within their bed, With a traitor-band around it, And a traitor-fla^ o'erhead.
To the fray comes the Bay State, Clear the way for the Bay State, Trust you may in the Bay State ; She will do or die !
