Battle Cry of Freedom


Lyrics

1. Yes we’ll rally ’round the flag, boys, we’ll rally once again,
Shouting the battle cry of freedom,
We will rally from the hillside, we’ll gather from the plain,
Shouting the battle cry of freedom!

Refrain
The Union forever! Hurrah, boys, Hurrah!
Down with the traitor, Up with the star!
While we rally ’round the flag, boys, Rally once again,
Shouting the battle cry of freedom!

2. We are springing to the call of our brothers gone before….
And we’ll fill our vacant ranks with a million freemen more….Refrain

3. We will welcome to our numbers the loyal, true and brave….
And although they may be poor, not a man shall be a slave….Refrain

1 thought on “Battle Cry of Freedom”

  1. Our flag is proudly floating on the land and on the main,
    Shout, shout the battle cry of Freedom!
    Beneath it oft we’ve conquered, and we’ll conquer oft again!
    Shout, shout the battle cry of Freedom!

    (Chorus)
    Our Dixie forever! She’s never at a loss!
    Down with the eagle and up with the cross
    We’ll rally ’round the bonny flag, we’ll rally once again,
    Shout, shout the battle cry of Freedom!
    Our gallant boys have marched to the rolling of the drums.
    Shout, shout the battle cry of Freedom!
    And the leaders in charge cry out, “Come, boys, come!”
    Shout, shout the battle cry of Freedom!

    (Chorus)
    They have laid down their lives on the bloody battle field.
    Shout, shout the battle cry of Freedom!
    Their motto is resistance – “To the tyrants never yield!”
    Shout, shout the battle cry of Freedom!

    (Chorus)
    While our boys have responded and to the fields have gone.
    Shout, shout the battle cry of Freedom!
    Our noble women also have aided them at home.
    Shout, shout the battle cry of Freedom!

    (Chorus)
