(English folk tune, Lyrics by John Erwin, publ. 1921)
Give three long cheers for sailors on the sea,
Give three long loud cheers loud as loud can be!
Through wind and tide their ships they guide
To guard our shores from danger,
Brave boys in blue, we trust our lives to you.
Give three long cheers for soldiers marching by,
Give three long loud cheers, wave your flags on high!
By day or night they match and fight
To save our homes from danger
Brave boys in brown who guard old Boston town.
