Free & Easy Of Our Union By—
Listen to the Cannons roaring,
Ask what means this awful strife,
We are fighting for our Union,
Which, is dearer than our life.
Patriot’s to the war are going,
Leaving happy homes behind;
Fighting for our glorious Banner,
Which by Liberty is entwined.
Glory to those sons of Erin,
Who fought with an Iron will;
Told the Southrons what may happen
They were for the Union still.
Fire Zouaves immortal heroes,
Avenge brave Ellsworth every one:
You have now a crown of glory,
Brighter than the blazing sun.
Brave CORCORAN now is missing,
And his life hangs on a thread;
Irish men rescue him if living,
Or avenge him if he’s dead.
Raise your voices all united.
Let us give three hearty cheers,
For brave SCOTT our gallant chieftain,
Also for our Volunteers.
