Jesse Hutchinson, 1860

Hurrah for the choice of the nation,
Our chieftain so brave and so true
We'll go for the great reformation,
For Lincoln and Liberty, too!
We'll go for the son of Kentucky
The hero of Hoosierdom through,
The pride of the "Suckers" so lucky,
For Lincoln and Liberty, too!
2. They'll find what by felling and mauling
Our railmaker statesman can do;
For the people are everywhere calling
For Lincoln and Liberty, too
Then up with the banner so glorious,
The star-spangled red, white, and blue,
We'll fight till our banner's victorious,
For Lincoln and Liberty, too.
3. Our David's good sling is unerring,
The Slavocrat's giant he slew,
Then shout for the freedom preferring,
For Lincoln and Liberty, too.
We'll go for the son of Kentucky,
The hero of Hoosierdom through,
The pride of the "Suckers" so lucky,
For Lincoln and Liberty, too.


This was the 1860 Campaign song of Abraham Lincoln. Suckers was a term used to describe the people of Illinois.
