The Hurrah! for the (“Red, White, and Blue.”)

3.
Here’s a health to them that’s awa’,
And here’s to them that’s awa’;
Here’s a bumper to Chase—he, the Western laddie.
That made “Greenbacks” as guid as the law.
Here’s freedom to him that would read,
Here’s freedom to him that would write:
There’s nane ever fear’d that the truth should be heard,
But they wham the truth would indict.

4.
Here’s a health to them that’s awa’,
And here’s to them that’s awa’; [them daunt,
Here’s “Meade,” and here’s “Grant,” and wha would
We’ll build in a hole i’ the wa’.
Here’s woman that’s true at the heart,
Here’s man that is sound at the core
May he that wad turn his button and coat
Be turn’d to the back of the door.

5.
Here’s a health to them that’s awa’
And here’s to them that’s awa’;
Here’s Abram Lincoln, a chief that’s na’ winkin’,
But bred wi’ an ax in his paw.
Here’s friends to the Stripes and the Stars,
Here’s friends that stand by them at need;
And wha would betray his country’s cause,
May hang by the neck till he’s deed.

6.
Here’s a health to them that’s awa’,
Here’s a health to them that’s away;
To Sherman and Sheridan, Grant and the rest,
And Farragut down in the bay!
With such speakers to stump for our cause
To crush out what treason began—
We will conquer the rebels—elect honest Abe,
And thus secure freedom to man!
