Our Army and Navy of Blue
Copyright, 1873, by E. H. Harding.
List to the music while I sing a lay
In praise of our flag, boys, that's wav'd for many a day!
It sheltered our soldiers and sailors so true,
It covers our Army and Navy of blue.
Over heads, boys, flaunting to the breeze;
Up to the peak greeting all lands and seas!
The emblem of Liberty, ever so true,
That covers our Army and Navy of blue.
Peace be our motto, charity our cause,
Faith to our colors, respect for our laws;
Friendship our greeting; our flag, as it flew,
Inspired our brave Army and Navy of blue.-Chorus.
