We are marching to the field, boys,
We're going to the fight,
Shouting the Battle Cry of Freedom.
And we bear the Heavenly cross,
For our cause is in the right,
Shouting the Battle Cry of Freedom.
Chorus:
Our rights forever!
Hurrah boys hurrah!
Down with the tyrants, Raise the Southern star,
And we'll rally round the flag, boys
We'll Rally once again
Shouting the Battle Cry of Freedom!
2. We'll meet the Yankee hosts, boys,
With fearless hearts and true,
Shouting the Battle Cry of Freedom.
And we'll show the dastard minions
What Southern pluck can do,
Shouting the Battle Cry of Freedom.
Chorus:

3. We'll fight them to the last, boys,
If we fall in the strife,
Shouting the Battle Cry of Freedom.
Our comrades - noble boys!
Will avenge us, life for life,
Shouting the Battle Cry of Freedom.
Chorus:
