The Sword And The Red White And Blue,

Fort Sumter! Fort Sumter is taken!
The flag of our fathers hauled down
Bold hearts of the Union awaken
And prove you are sons of renown.
All ties of your party now sever,
And flock ’round your standard so true;
Compromise now? Oh never! No! Never!
The sword and the red, white and blue.

Old Abe’s made his first proclamation
The heart of the West will not shrink,
Unite, then, and stand by the nation,
And do of the deeds which you think.
He calls on Wisconsin’s devotion,
He calls on you sir, and you.
Then drown every home-tie emotion,
And cling to the red, white and blue.

Though war wags its wide desolation,
Though the South howl its hoarse banner-cry,
Resolve you stand by the Nation,
To stand by the Union or die.
Let Davis and wigfall endeavor
The free of the North to subdue,
Ours homes and our army forever,
Three cheers for the red, white and blue.
