BONNIE BLUE FLAG. 159
From valley-homes, by rivers fair
That wind among the hills, Stern rings their tramp upon the air,
While ev'ry traitor thrills. Come on, Green-Mountain Boys, come on !
Brave sons of gallant sires! And strike for Freedom's flag and home
Till ev'ry foe expires.
Your mountain-air breeds stalwart frames,
And hearts to terror sealed, To win from fight a deathless fame,
Or die upon the field. Remember well the days of old !
Remember Allen's name! Fight ye as did your fathers bold —
Strike for your ancient fame !
—♦— BONNIE BLUE FLAG.
BY ISAAC M. BALL.
WE 'RE fighting for our Union, We 're fighting for our trust: We 're fighting for that happy land, Where sleeps our father's dust.
