We Will Have the Union Still
Johnson, Song Publisher, Stationer & Printer, No. 7 N. Tenth St., 3 doors above Market, Phila.
We will have the Union Still.
Will you listen to my ditty,
I will please you if I can;
Let us all go in for Union,
As should every Union man.
Go in ABE, we will support you,
While for Uncle Sam you fight,
McClellan brave he will assist you,
And the North with all her might.
Though the Rebels got Fort Sumter,
It was not a battle won;
Did they fight like men and soldiers,
When they starved out Anderson.
Though from Bull Run we retreated,
Did they not fight ten to one,
But we will avenge the insult
when we bring back Corcoran.
Let but General Scott command us,
Marching to the battle field,
They shall find we’ll die for freedom,
Ne’er we will to traitors yield.
Then hurrah for those brave fellows,
Who have gone forth to the wars,
They’ll return soon full of glory
Waving high our Flag of Stars.
