When first the sound of battle came,
We gaily marched away;
For, when we heard our country call,
We could not but obey;
For truth and right the first to fight,
And never known to flee,
Our fathers recognize their sons-
The gallant Ninth are we.

A hundred years ago we stood in fight arrayed, boys,
And boldly met the foe for truth and liberty;
Our voice is living still, and we should be obeyed, boys,
Who gave our lives to make you free, a hundred years ago.

A little band of earnest men,
Who knew no law but right,
We just a century ago
Set freedom's torch alight;
We fought and fell, and ages tell
The story, which you know,
Of how the sun of glory rose
A hundred years ago.-Chorus.
