Words and Music by Henry J. Sayers.

Our country was calling defenders to arms! was the cry, loud and clear;
Disturbing the calm of our village, with fears for our old flag so dear.
Jack Ross and I were true comrades, always in sunshine and shade, [Brigade.
So together we shoulder'd our muskets, and march d to the front with toe Ninth

Comrades were we together, in sunshine and stormy weather;
Loving each other, oh, show me another like Jack of the Ninth Brigade.

And whether on march or in conflict, dear Jack at my side could be found;
Sharing our changeful fortunes, yes, comrades, in friendship fast bound.
But one day o'ermatched in close combat, I thought life fast nearing its end.
The fatal thrust came to Jack, not to me, Jack gave up his life for his friend.-Cho.
