A YANKEE SOLDIERS SONG.        \
To us it seems a coward's shirk It makes us feel less brave, sir
We call it mean and " mud-sill " work, This sending back a slave, sir !
Yankee boys will fight it out! &c.
We did not leave our homes to do
Such dirty jobs as these, sir Our hearts within us, warm and true,
It chills and make's 'em freeze, sir.
Yankee boys will fight it out! &c.
The man who works with heart is strong And right keeps up the pluck, sir
We cannot feel so bold for wrong We cannot hope for luck, sir.
Yankee bovs will fight it out! &c.
We long to have our flag unfurled To make the whole land free, sir
For we can proudly face the world, When we that day shall see, sir.
Yankee boys will fight it out! &c.
O, how we '11 hail our banner then !
Its fame all clear and bright, sir ; When all can feel that they are men,
And all have equal right, sir.
