To fight for the only banner we know — The Stripes and the Stars on the field of blue.
Oh! for the love of the hearts in grief and fear, Our swords flashed out from the scabbards that bound them; And more surely here do we guard our dear, Than close by their sides with our arms around them.
For we go, we go, &c.
Let cowards prate what they '11 do at needs,
When steel's at the breasts of our helpless wo­men ; We saddle our steeds, and whatever our deeds, We '11 show to the eyes of our Rebel foemen. For we go, we go, &c.
Then onward, my boys, with a ringing cheer, With cracking carbine and glittering sabre;
Let the pale foe hear from vanguard to rear, How our troopers welcome their noble labor. For we go, we go, &c.
