No. 6. A New National Anthem.


1. My country, 'tis of thee,
Once land of liberty,
Of thee I sing.
Land of the Millionaire;
Farmers with pockets bare;
Caused by the cursed snare —
The Money Ring.

2. My native country, thee,
Thou wert so pure and free,
Long, long ago.
Yet still I love thy rills,
But hate thy usury mills,
That fill the bankers' tills
Till they overflow.

3. So when my country, thee,
Which should be noble, free,
I'll love thee still;
I'll love thy Greenback men,
Who strive with tongue and pen,
For liberty again,
With right good will.

4. And then my country, thee,
Thou wilt again be free;
And Freedom's tower.
Stand by your fireside then,
And show that you are men,
Whom they can't fool again,
And crush their power.

Thomas Nicol.
