242 THE " OLD CONCERN."
THE "OLD CONCERN."
A NEW SONG, BY UNCLE SAM.
THE " Old Concern," which has so long
Its banner bright unfurled — In honor, truth, and glory strong —
The pride of all the world ! Ah! cowards, if one spark of shame
Can in your bosom burn, Reflect how much you owe the name
Of that good " Old Concern."
Through long, long years, your happy lot
It made for you ; and then It gave — what else you ne'er had got —
A station among men ; Without its aid which of you, pray,
An honest cent would earn ? And yet you wish to run away,
And leave the " Old Concern."
Remember Bunker ! Lexington !
The Delaware ! Yorktown ! Fields where our fathers fought and won
Their glory and renown !
