Melody - "Free and Easy"
Line

Unknown, 1861

Onward! onward! is the cry now,
Treason stalks throughout the land;
To guard our honor each one try now,
March together, heart and hand.
Chorus:
So let the Southerners do as they will,
We will fight for the Union still,
|: Fight for the Union, :|
We will fight for the Union still.

2. Though revolution, dark as night,
Enshrouds the banner of the free,
There are none so base that will not fight
For this great land of Liberty!
Chorus:

3. The traitors would the Union sever
Our fathers worked so hard to form;
Yet we are for the Union ever,
Through sunshine, peace or storm.
Chorus:

4. Then hear! oh hear! our country's call,
Raise our glorious banner high!
Come, rally! rally! one and all!
To save the Union or to die!
Chorus:
