BIVOUAC-SONG.
BIVOUAC-SONG OF THE FIFTY-THIRD REGIMENT.*
Air " Aula1 Lang Syne.''''
WHILE black Disunion rears its head In this fair Freedom's land, So Ions we '11 sing a warlike strain,
And be a warlike band. Our flag 's unfurled the Stars and Stripes
We ever will maintain ; The traitor dies who boldly dares That glorious flag to stain, Chorus We 're resting now in bivouac, And one day's march is made, We '11 sing a song while twilight sinks Into the night's deep shade.
Our brave young leader cheers us on,
Our officers are true, We trust in them, they trust in us
Whate'er they say we do. We know we '11 never die of thirst,
While our gallant Brooke is full;
* Pennsylvania Volunteers.
