Ballad no.3. The Final Victory. see numbers one and two. By A. ANDERSON.

The veteran troops at Gettysburg,
Hurrah! hurrah!
Their shouts of victory soon were heard,
Hurrah! hurrah!
They fought and made the foe recoil,
And drove the rebels from our soil,
Hurrah! brave boys, hip,
Hip, hurrah! hurrah.

McClellan pressed them at the East,
Hurrah! hurrah!
Grant and Burnside at South-west,
Hurrah! hurrah!
General Meade is pressing them South,
Our Navy hemming f hem round about,
Hurrah! brave boys, hip,
Hip, hurrah! hurrah.

There’s General Banks at New Orleans,
Hurrah! hurrah!
Our Squadron on Mis’sippi stream,
Hurrah! hurrah!
“The Confederate line now cut in two,
The rebels scarce know what to do,
Hurrah! brave boys, hip,
Hip, hurrah! hurrah!.

We soon shall take them in a net,
Hurrah! hurrah!
Surround them and make Davis sweat,
Hurrah! hurrah!
The Army and Navy then shall have rest,
When we shall have captured this National pest,
Hurrah! brave boys, hip,
Hip, hurrah! hurrah.

And when this cruel war is oer,
Hurrah! hurrah!
Then mother’s, sisters, weep no more,
Hurrah! hurrah!
The shouts of Victory we’ll prolong,
And hail each warrior with a song,
And we’ll all rejoice when
The troops come marching home,
