VOLUNTEER CHORUS. 133
By the girls we love we '11 heroes prove, And stand or fall together!
Then here 's three cheers, &c.
Here 's the Green Mountain men from the wood and glen,
And from each craggy highland, And the Jersey Blue, with his rifle true,
And the boys of stout Rhode Island! The Empire State, who cannot wait,
Crowds on from her furthest regions, And the mighty West, from her teeming breast,
Pours down her conquering legions ! Then here 's three cheers, &c.
We '11 hang Jeff". Davis on a tree,
Upon his own plantation! And his reward give Beauregard,
And charge it to the nation ! And we '11 bring from the wars the Stripes and Stars,
When all our toils are over, With a song to the praise of the good old days,
And live and die in clover.
Then here's three cheers, &c.
