FREEDOM'S LAND. 193
DEDICATED TO THE HEROES OP ANTIETAM. ~ BY W. W. ELY, M. D.
Tune — "Dixie."
LET others praise the land of cotton, Nigger-slaves and treason rotten; Cheer away, cheer away, cheer away, Freedom's
land: We '11 sing the land where we were born, Where honest toil no man dares scorn : Cheer away, cheer away, cheer away, Freedom's
land. Chorus — Although from home we sever, away, away,
We '11 never sigh, but live and die, True to our cause forever, Hooray! Hooray! True to our cause forever.
In the good old times, our fathers fought To leave us treasures dearly bought; Cheer away, &c. 13
