Ye Sons of the North!

Ye Sons of the North!

Attend to me, soldiers and sailors and others,
My ditty appeals to your courage and sense,
Come ‘round me, mechanics—let’s shake hands like brothers
And join one and all in our Union’s defence!
Though Copperheads try to seduce, we’ll endeavor
To stand by our Flag and the Union for ever!

Our fore-fathers fully considered the cause
Of Freedom—of justice, of honor and fame,
Haughty Britain they conquered to give us such laws
As raised above others America’s name!
Then shall we lose sight of them—never, boys, never,
We’ll stand by our Flag and the Union for ever!

Ye sons of the North. then, come join hand in hand,
And the glorious old times of the Union restore,
With all our brave armies and Grant to command,
Oh! soon will this struggle for freedom be o’er, Though Rebels and Copperheads plot, we’ll endeavor
To stand by the Flag of the Union forever!
