1. HAIL with joy
The Farmer's boy --
Shout! oh, shout with glee!
For LINCOLN, true,
And HAMLIN, too --
The champions of the Free!
East and West,
Do your best,
Now, with heart and voice,
For LINCOLN, true,
And HAMLIN, too,
They are the people's choice.

Chorus -- Hi, rally! Ho, rally!
Round the polls with me,
For LINCOLN, true,
And HAMLIN, too,
The Champions of the Free!

2. Humbly born --
Night and morn
Inured to care and toil --
From early youth
He was in truth,
A tiller of the soil;
With zealous skill
And powerful will,
(Deny the fact who can),
He worked his way
And stands to - day
A noble, self - made man.
Cho. -- Hi, rally! Ho, rally! &c.

Man and boy,
Shout with joy,
Let your voices sound;
LINCOLN'S name
And LINCOLN'S fame
Will Freedom's foes confound!
He'll use up Steve,
Too, we believe,
He whipped in other spats,
For he's the boy
To split the rails
And maul the Democrats.
Cho. -- Hi, rally! Ho, rally! &c.
