THE CAMP WAR-SONG.              223
My Maryland ! My Maryland!
Alas ! the ruthless day ! That sees my gallant buttonwoods
Ride galloping away; And ruthless for my chivalry,
Proud gentlemen, with spurs, Whose bones lie stark upon the hills,
And stark among the furze.
RAISE the banner, raise it high, boys,
Let it float against the sky; " God be with us! " this our cry, boys — Under it we '11 do or die. 1st. Chorus — Arise to glory, glory, glory,
Our country calls — march on! march on!                           
2d. Chorus — Co-ca-che-lunk-che-lunk-che-la-ly, Co-ca-che-lunk-che-lunk-che-lay, Co-ca-che-lunk-che-lunk-ehe-la-ly, Rig-a-ge-dig, and away we go!
* The version sung in the Army of the Mississippi.
