Battle Cry of Freedom

		


Yes we'll rally round the flag, boys, we'll rally once again, Shouting the battle cry of freedom,
We will rally from the hillside, we'll gather from the plain, Shouting the battle cry of freedom!

Chorus:

The Union forever! Hurrah, boys, hurrah!
Down with the traitor, up with the stars;
While we rally round the flag, boys, rally once again, Shouting the battle cry of freedom!

We are springing to the call of our brothers gone before, Shouting the battle cry of freedom!
And we'll fill our vacant ranks with a million freemen more, Shouting the battle cry of freedom!
Chorus

We will welcome to our numbers the loyal, true and brave, Shouting the battle cry of freedom!
And although they may be poor, not a man shall be a slave, Shouting the battle cry of freedom!
Chorus 1
