The Boys Of Ohio.


Step forth, ye sons of freedom,
Who strangers are to fear;
Repair unto your quarters,
And enter volunteer;
Where you will be advanced
Above all worldly store,
Whilst we stand under arms,
Amid a loyal corps.
We're the boys of Ohio

If our officers command us,
We'll cheerfully obey;
If the British and Indians stand us,
We'll show them Yankee play;


We'll rout them from their trenches,
With our bold musketeers,
And we'll boldly let them know
We're the gallant volunteers,
We're the boys of Ohio.

And when that we have conquered,
As homewards we do come,
Triumphant colours flying,
With the loud fife and drum,
Our sweethearts, wives and children
Will meet us with three cheers,
Crying, huzza, huzza, huzza,
There's the gallant volunteers.
There's the boys of Ohio.
