264 GALLANT BOYS OF KEYES' BRIGADE.
Thou shalt live on, and thy people shall own Loyalty's sweet, where each heart is thy throne, Union and Freedom thine heritage be, — Country of Washington ! blessings on thee!
—►— THE GALLANT BOYS OF KEYES' BRIGADE.
BY DR. REYNOLDS, Assistant-Surgeon Twenty-fourth Regiment, N. Y. S. V.
WE'RE ready all to meet the foe, With hearts resolved and spirits gay ; And every brow wears the bright glow
Of glory from the coming fray. We have too long been waiting here : And now, at last, in arms arrayed, We 're moving onward with a cheer — The gallant boys of Keyes' Brigade.
They 're coming on ! Won't it be sport ?
They '11 not have very far to come; For we will make their journey short,
And meet them more than half way home. And when we meet, oh, won't they pray
That they afar from us had stayed, And had not dared, upon this day,
The gallant boys of Keyes' Brigade.
