Air—" Hoist up the Flag."
This song was written by a private in Company A, Fifty-Fourth (colored) Regiment, Massachusetts Volun­teers.
FREMONT told them when the war it first
begun, How to save the Union, and the way it should be
done ; But Kentucky swore so hard, and old Abe he had
his fears, Till every hope was lost but the colored volunteers; Chorus —O, give us a flag, all free without a slave ; We '11 fight to defend it as our fathers did so brave : The gallant Comp'ny "A " will make the Rebels
dance, And we '11 stand by the Union if we only have a
McClellan went to Richmond with two hundred
thousand brave; He said " keep back the niggers," and the Union
he would save.
