The Pennsylvania Volunteers

The Pennsylvania Volunteers.

Oh! where, tell us where, are our gallant soldiers gone,
Oh! where, tell us where, are our gallant soldiers gone,
They’ve gone with streaming banners where noble deeds are done, And we’ll rejoice to see them, returning safely home,
They’ve gone with streaming banners where noble deeds are done,
And we’ll rejoice, with victory crowned, to welcome them at home.

Oh! what, tell us what, do our gallant soldiers wear,
Oh! what, tell us what, do our gallant soldiers wear,
A noble and determined mien, the freeman’s badge of war,
And upon each gallant breast, there yet shall gleam a star;
A noble and determined mien, the freeman’s badge of war,
And upon each gallant breast, there yet shall gleam a star.

Suppose, ah! suppose, that some cruel wound,
Should pierce a gallant soldier, and all his hopes confound,
The band would play a cheering march, the banners round him fly,
And for his flag and country dear, with pleasure he would die;
The band would play a cheering march, the banners round him fly,
And for his flag and country dear, with pleasure he would die;

But we will hope to see them yet, in Pennsylvania’s bounds,
But we will hope to see them yet, in Pennsylvania’s bounds,
Their native State of Liberty will nurse their glorious wounds,
While wide o’er all our hills and plains, each warlike deed resounds;
Their native State of Liberty will nurse their glorious wounds,
While wide o’er all our hills and plains, each warlike deed resounds.

And when the Stars and Stripes again, o’er a united land,
And when the Stars and Stripes again, o’er a united land,
Unfurls its folds unto the breeze, for many coming years,
Foremost will stand the gallant deeds of Pennsylvania’s volunteers;
Unfurls its folds unto the breeze, for many coming years,
Foremost will stand the gallant deeds of Pennsylvania’s volunteers
