We Are Coming, Uncle Billy, Ten Hundred Thousand Strong.
Copyright, 1898, by Chas. O Brokaw.
Words by Karl Wakorb. Music by H. O. Wheeler.

We are coming, Uncle Billy, ten hundred thousand strong,
And when we are assembled, we'll make a mighty throng,
The blue and gray together as brothers one and all,
To help you, Uncle Billy, and see the Spaniards fall;
We've joined our hands together in one triumphant band,
To uphold our nation's honor against the Spanish hand.

We are coming, Uncle Billy, ten hundred thousand strong,
To gather 'round old glory and avenge the Spanish wrong;
From North and South and East and West, throughout our noble land,
Well gather 'round our Stars and Stripes, and fight for Uncle Sam.

We are coming, Uncle Billy, in answer to your call,
Each mother's son is ready in freedom's name to fall,
Nor fear we all this bluster of nations joining Dons,
Our cause is sure a Just one, to free poor Cuba's bonds:
in freedom's name we'll do the same our fathers did before.
And clear this land of Spanish hand for now and evermore.-Cho.
