STEADY, BOYS, STEADY.
Copyright. 1890, by William A. Pond & Co.
Arranged and adapted by Waldo Allen

Our regiment was raised, 'twas by Colonel Blake,
And a right brave man was he-;
No quarter would he take, but in battle he would make
For the strongest of the enemies;
In the van he shone, as he led on,
For a right brave man was he:
And the foe would fear when they heard us cheer,
When he called out menace:
Steady, boys, steady; ready, boy, ready;
Duty, boys, duty, wherever we are sent;
Never know defeat, boys; death before retreat, boys;
This is the song of the regiment.

Chorus.
Steady, boys, steady; ready, boys, ready;
Duty. boys. duty. wherever we are sent;
Never" know defeat. boys death before retreat, boys;
This is the song of the regiment.

Now our colors unfold, here's to Colonel Blake,
For a right brave man was he;
Like a paladin of old, he was killed, proud and bold,
With his face towards the enemee;
He is with us yet; who could e" er forget
What a right brave man was he;
And we still can hear his well-known cheer.
For this was his legacee:
Steady, boys, steady; ready, boys, ready;
Duty, boye, duty, wherever we are sent;
Never know defeat, boys; death before retreat, boye;
This is the song of the regiment. -Chorus.
