SONG OF THE MARYLAND FIRST. 283 SONG OF THE MARYLAND FIRST.
INSCRIBED TO COLONEL JOHN R. KENLY, BY J. J. STEWART.
WE 'LL strike for our country,
Proud land of the Free ! Her banner floats o'er us,
And happy are we. Its star-glistening quarter Illumines the story Of Liberty's triumphs On red fields of glory ! Baptized in the blood of our fathers, we '11 cherish And fight for our flag till the last man shall perish!
(Repeat.)
One blow for the Union Though traitors assail The bulwark of Freedom,
They cannot prevail. Destruction awaits them The vengeance of Heaven ! Like chaff in the wild wind Their hosts shall be driven ! Baptized in the blood of our fathers, we '11 cherish And fight for the flag till our last man shall perish !
