Freedom’s Guide.

Our country is now great and free,
And thus forever it shall be;
Repeat.—We know the way,—we know the way;
Though Southern foes may gather here,
We will protect what we hold dear;
We know the way, etc.

The south shall see that we are true,
And that we know a thing or two;
We know the way, etc.
As Yankee boys we are at hand,
Our countless throng shall fill their land.
We know the way, etc.

From east to west, from north to south,
We will send our mighty legions fourth:
We know the way, etc.
The freedom that our fathers won,
Shall be defended by each son.
We know the way, etc.

Then shout, then shout o’er hill and plain,
We will our country’s rights maintain;
We know the way, etc.
We will always guard it with our might,
And keep steadfast in the right.
We know the way, etc.

Old Jeff he now begins to lag;
He knows that we will stand by our flag:
We know the way, etc.
With Scott to guide us in the right,
We will show them how the 69th regt. fight.
We knew the way, etc.
