THE CAMP WAR-SONG.              223
My Maryland ! My Maryland!
Alas ! the ruthless day ! That sees my gallant buttonwoods
Ride galloping away; And ruthless for my chivalry,
Proud gentlemen, with spurs, Whose bones lie stark upon the hills,
And stark among the furze.

THE CAMP WAR-SONG.*
RAISE the banner, raise it high, boys,
Let it float against the sky; " God be with us! " this our cry, boys Under it we '11 do or die. 1st. Chorus Arise to glory, glory, glory,
Our country calls march on! march on!                           
2d. Chorus Co-ca-che-lunk-che-lunk-che-la-ly, Co-ca-che-lunk-che-lunk-che-lay, Co-ca-che-lunk-che-lunk-ehe-la-ly, Rig-a-ge-dig, and away we go!
* The version sung in the Army of the Mississippi.
