To us it seems a coward's shirk — It makes us feel less brave, sir —
We call it mean and " mud-sill " work, This sending back a slave, sir !
Yankee boys will fight it out! &c.
We did not leave our homes to do
Such dirty jobs as these, sir — Our hearts within us, warm and true,
It chills and make's 'em freeze, sir.
Yankee boys will fight it out! &c.
The man who works with heart is strong — And right keeps up the pluck, sir —
We cannot feel so bold for wrong — We cannot hope for luck, sir.
Yankee bovs will fight it out! &c.
We long to have our flag unfurled To make the whole land free, sir —
For we can proudly face the world, When we that day shall see, sir.
Yankee boys will fight it out! &c.
O, how we '11 hail our banner then !
Its fame all clear and bright, sir ; When all can feel that they are men,
And all have equal right, sir.
