Hold the Fort.


Oh, ye people see the signal
Waving in the sky,
Reinforcements now appearing,
Victory is nigh.

CHORUS -- Hold the fort for we are coming,
Hear the people cry,
We will vote the Greenback ticket,
Honest men we'll try.

See corruption boldly stalking
In our Congress Halls,
In the Presidential mansion
Tainting great and small.

CHORUS -- Hold the, &c.

See our commerce credit sinking,
Factories all still,
Workmen idle, begging, starving,
Suffering every ill.

CHORUS -- Hold the, &c.

See our taxes, swelling, rising,
Money almost gone,
Produce falling, no one buying,
Farmers' faces long.

CHORUS -- Hold the, &c.

Ho, ye voters, pure and honest,
Rally with us then;
Come and vote the Greenback ticket,
Vote for honest men,

CHORUS -- Hold the, &c.
