198          A YANKEE SOLDIER'S SONG.
I held my head up like a man ; A righteous cause brings luck, sir.
Yankee boys will fight it out! &c.
So proud was I of fatherland, Where humans all are free, sir,
I found it hard to understand Some things I lived to see, sir.
Yankee boys will fight it out! &c.
To us one day a brown man came,
In Dixie's land a slave, sir, And pleaded hard, in Freedom's name,
That him we 'd try to save, sir.
Yankee boys will fight it out! &c.
Of course we will, our men cried out;
All free beneath this flag, sir ! Then he began, with hearty shout,
To cheer the starry rag, sir.
Yankee bovs will fight it out ! &c.
But, whip in hand, a master came, And drove that man away, sir;
We felt it was a burning shame, But could not have our say, sir.
Yankee boys will fight it out! &c.
