Stephen Foster, 1856

Come all ye men of every state,
Our creed is broad and fair;
Buchanan is our candidate,
And we'll put him in the White House Chair.
Chorus:
Then come ye men from ev'ry state,
Our creed is broad and fair;
Buchanan is our candidate,
And we'll put him in the White House Chair.

2. Let all our hearts for union be,
For the North and South are one;
They've worked together manfully,
And together they will still work on.
Chorus:

3. We'll have no dark designing band
To rule with secret sway;
We'll give to all a helping hand,
And be open as the light of day.
Chorus:

4. We'll not outlaw the land that holds
The bones of Washington;
Where Jackson fought and Marion bled,
And the battles of the brave were won.
Chorus:
