When the Boys Come Marching Home.
The Veteran troops are coming home,
Our volunteers from Old Keystone,
They have fought through many a battle sore,
While grape like hail around did pour,
The gallant Twenty-ninth, P.V.
The first to re-enlist we see,
The Penn’a Zouaves, they follow suit,
The Ninety-fifth again recruit,
The Twenty-third and Twenty-sixth,
The Twenty-eighth and Seventy-fifth,
The Eighty-second and Ninety-first,
The Seventy-third among the first,
The California boys true blue,
They stood in battles not a few,
The rebels used their colonel rough,
He fell in battle at Balls Bluff,
