Song

44

TUNE -- Sparkling and Bright.

How fair and bright the beaming light
The eastern sky adorning!
While millions start, with joyous heart,
And hail the glorious morning.

45

CHORUS. -- Then let the shout go gayly out,
And sound aloud the parley;
Buchanan's down, and Freedom's crown
Must deck the brow of Charlie.

Old Slavery eyes, with vast surprise,
Republicans arousing;
He knows each club will soundly drub
And give old Buck a sousing.

CHORUS. -- Then let the shout, &c.

How keen the smart that pains his heart
To see the free so merry;
While all his hosts, as pale as ghosts,
Are rushing towards the ferry.

CHORUS. -- Then let the shout, &c.

Buchanan looks from Keitt to Brooks,
From Douglas out to Shannon,
But cannot hear one hearty cheer,
Or hear a single cannon.

CHORUS. -- Then let the shout, &c.

With deep delight the free unite,
And round their chieftain rally;
While old and young send out the song
From every hill and valley.

CHORUS. -- Then let the shout &c.

O, speed the time when Freedom's clime,
So much renowned in story,
Shall burst each band, and Fremont's hand
Shall guide her on to glory.

46

CHORUS. -- Then let the shout go gayly out,
And sound aloud the parley;
Buchanan's down, and Freedom's crown
Must deck the brow of Charlie.
