"GREENBACKS."
Then let us ever, living, dying,
Be where the Stars and Stripes are flying;
Cheer away! &c. The good old flag we '11 never alter, And he who would, deserves a halter ;
Cheer away ! &c. Although from home we sever,
" GREENBACKS."
pi KEEN be thy back upon thee ! Thou pledge of happier days, When bloody-handed Treason
No more its hand shall raise ; But still, from Maine to Texas,
The Stars and Stripes shall wave, O'er the hearts and homes of freemen,
Nor mock one fettered slave.
Pledge of the people's credit,
To carry on the war, By furnishing the sinews
In a currency at par With cash enough left over,
When they 've cancelled every note,
