Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 60
OUR NATION'S CALL.
Copyright. 1898. by Harry F. Cook.
Composed by Harry F. Cook. Arranged by Otto Bonnell.
Unfold the glorious banner, proudly let it wave
Over land and o'er sea and the homes of the brave;
Down with tyranny, from bondage make them free,
And give to them their freedom and liberty;
Our boys are brave and bold, as heroes should be,
Are the pride of the nation, and will make Cuba tree.
To arms! to arms! to arms! the bugle call sounded.
Away! away! away! on your gallant steeds well mounted;
For freedom and right forever it must be;
Our brave boys in blue will make Cuba free.
Then let the cannon roar and the sword clash,
Make tyranny tremble and its powers crash;
Let the echo ring from shore to shore;
Tis the battle-cry for freedom forevermore.
The star-spangled banner shall wave o'er land and sea.
And to the world proclaim we will make Cuba free.-Chorus.
Our battle ships are staunch and well manned.
By gallant heroes great battles were won and planned;
They remember the fate of the Maine
And the heroes that have fallen by the treachery of Spain.
Our Army and Navy are true heroes, you see.
They'll fight for their country and will make Cuba free.-Chorus.
