Call to Greenbackers.
MUSIC BY WILL S. LURTON.
Come all ye honest Greenbackers
Let each man raise his voice,
The time has come for every man
To let his heart rejoice.
We'll gather round the good old flag,
With hearts both true and brave,
And give three honest, rousing cheers,
The Greenback's life to save.
Three cheers for Greenbacks,
Three for Labor, too:
Stand by the good old flag,
The red, white and blue.
Come let us live as once we lived,
Obey our country's laws,
The Constitution as it is,
The Union as it was.
We'll jump aboard the Greenback ship
And bravely ride the wave,
And land her safe in port again,
And hear the Shylocks rave.
Come strike now while the iron's hot,
The race is nearly run,
The work of honest government
Has earnestly begun.
Come, sing aloud to all the world
And hear the mighty shout,
And let them know the people are
For kicking Shylocks out.
Come, now's the time, 'twere better far
We all slept in our graves,
Than to submit to men who've made
Us nothing but their slaves.
Let liberty lift up her eyes
To heaven, and raise her hand
And say: Thank God, we've conquered by
A National Greenback Band.
