TRUMPET-SONG OF BATTLE. 291
But we go to find and meet him,
And the welcome we shall give, When as man to man we greet him,
Is, that ONLY ONE CAN LIVE.
Fled ! and we may not pursue him —
Back unto our homes again — Oh ! that we might go unto him !
Hunt the tiger in his den. We obey, for law and order
Is our rule, as well as Right : If again he nears our border,
Call the hunters in their might. Cincinnati, Ohio, July, 1863.
TRUMPET-SONG OF BATTLE. Tune — "Here's a Health to King Charles.11
COME, boys, join our song,
Let it roll through the land, We have loitered too long —
Round our flag let us stand ! Be firm to your ground I
Let your free banners wave, While the trumpet shall sound,
Here 's a health to the brave !
