BATTLE-SONG OF THE FIFTY-FIRST. 139
BATTLE-SONG OF THE FIFTY-FIRST.
The following is the Battle-Song of the Fifty-first Regi­ment of New York, sung by them as they approached the coast of North Carolina.
SAY, Rebels, will you meet us,
Say, Rebels, will you greet us, Say, Rebels, will you beat us,
On North Carolina shore V In the name of God we '11 meet you, With the sword of God we '11 greet you, By the grace of God we '11 beat you, On North Carolina shore ;
Singing glory, hallelujah, Singing glory, hallelujah, Singing glory, hallelujah, To God for evermore !
With the sword of " Jeff." you meet us, In the name of " Jeff." you greet us, In Treason's cause to beat us,
On North Carolina shore : But our flag shall float forever, And our Union none shall sever, And treason punish ever,
On North Carolina shore.
