The Temperance Pledge

By J. F. COLES.
TUNE — Lovely Fan.

The Temp'rance ball is rolling along,
Rolling along,
Rolling along,
A thousand voices swell the song,
And shout for liberty.

Then come and sign the Pledge tonight,
The Pledge tonight,
The Pledge tonight;
Then come and sign the Pledge tonight,
And fly from Alcohol.

The temp'rance banner waves on high;
Waves on high — waves on high;
Cold water is our battle cry,
Our watchword, Victory.

Then come and sign the Pledge tonight, &c.

Each mother, daughter, sister, wife,
Sister, wife — sister, wife,
Is pledged to aid us in the strife,
And cheer us on our way.

The come and sign the Pledge tonight, &c.

The good and true, the wise and brave,
Wise and brave — wise and brave,
Unite with heart and band to save
The poor forsaken sot.

Then come and sign the Pledge tonight, &c.

God speed the happy, happy day,
Happy day — happy day,
When all shall own his righteous sway,
When all shall be redeemed.

Then come and sign the Pledge tonight, &c.
