142 SONG OF THIRTEENTH REGIMENT.
SONG OF THE THIRTEENTH REGIMENT, MASSACHUSETTS RIFLES.
DEDICATED TO LIEUTENANT JUDSON, COMPANY C.
WE go where cannon rattle on the road,
We go where batteries frown ! And we riflemen feel as we cap and load, That the Rebel flag must come down ! Come down, That the Rebel flag must come down !
We go where traitors battle against law;
We go with a vengeful shout! And we soldiers know, as we enter the war, 'T is for country we rush to their rout! Their rout, For our country we rush to the rout!
We come, with rifles levelled for a charge,
And Rebels must fall before us ! But hearts of the Thirteenth Regiment are large, And give quarter where foes implore us ! Implore us, When defeated foes implore us.
