Stephen Foster, 1862

The flags are flying
And brave men dying,
The din of battle is revealed;
The Union's quaking,
The land is shaking
With the tramp of a million in the field.
Chorus:
We've a million in the field,
A million in the field,
While our flag is slighted,
With hearts united,
We can bring a million more to the field.
2. We were peachful hearted
In days departed,
While foes kept blighting plans concealed,
But they now must weather
The storms they gather,
For they must meet a million in the field.
Chorus:

3. Down in old Kentucky,
They're true and plucky;
They know that the Union is their shield,
And they'll do their duty
In all its beauty,
When they find we've a million in the field.
Chorus:
