1OWA MARCHING-SONG.             123
IX.
Bow down, in haste, thy guilty head !
God's wrath is swift and sore : The sky with gathering bolts is red Cleanse from thy skirts the slaughter shed, Or make thyself an ashen bed
Oh Baltimore!
IOWA MARCHING-SONG.
DEDICATED TO THE OFFICERS AND MEN OF THE THIRTY-EIGHTH REGIMENT IOWA VOLUNTEERS.
BY SAMUEL MCNUTT.
Air " Marseillaise."
WE come, we come from the land of prairie, Iowa, home of our hearts, afar; The flag of patriot sires we carry,
The flag they loved in peace and war; The flag they loved in peace and war, No traitor hand shall tear asunder
This glorious flag, our fathers' pride Nor shall the North and South divide, By Rebel steel, or cannon thunder. Hurrah ! hurrah ! ye brave,
Ye fearless Hawkeye band, March on, march on, march on to save Our Union and our land.
