Marching Along

AUNER’S PRINTING OFFICE, 110 N. TENTH ST., ab. ARCH.

Marching along.

The army is gathering from near and from far,
The trumpet is sounding the call for the war;
McClellan’s our leader, he’s gallant and strong,
We’ll gird on our armor and be marching along.

The foe is before us, in battle array,
But let us not waver not turn from the way:
The Lord is out strength and the Union’s our song,
With courage and faith we are marching along.

We sigh for our country, we mourn for our dead,
For them now our last drop of blood we will shed;
Our cause is the right one, our foe’s in the wrong,
Then gladly we’ll sing as we’re marching along.

Our wives and our children we leave in your care,
We know you will help them their sorrows to bear;
’Tis hard thus to part, but we hope ’t won’t be long,
We’ll keep up our hearts as we’re marching along.

The flag of our country is floating on high,
We’ll stand by that flag till we conquer or die;
Mc Clellan’s our leader, he’s gallant and strong,
We’ll gird on our armor and be marching along.

A. S. AUNER, SONG PUBLISHER, 110 N. 10th ab. Arch, Philadelphia.
