114                   RALLYING SONG.
Before them shrunk the traitors, above them rise
the cheers, As through the throng, a myriad strong, march on
the Volunteers.
Hurrah, then, for the old Bay State, that stood so
well at bay ! Hurrah, for those who shed their blood, and gave
their lives away! For grand old Massachusetts, boys, let's give three
rousing cheers ! — Three times three and a tiger for the Yankee
Volunteers!
—♦—
