"The Battle Cry of Freedom" as written by David E. Schwartz and George Frederick Root....
Oh, we'll ral-ly 'round the flag, boys,
we'll ral-ly once a-gain, Shout-ing the bat-tle cry of free - dom.
We will fal-ly from the hill-side, we'll gath-er from the plain,
Shout-ing the bat-tle cry of free - dom.

The U - nion for-ev-er, hur-rah, boys, hur-rah!
Down with the trai-tor, up with the star.
While we ral-ly 'round the flag, boys, ral-ly once again,
Shout-ing the bat-tle cry of free - dom.

We are spring-ing to the call of our broth-ers gone before,
Shout-ing the bat-tle cry of free - dom.
And we'll fill the vac-ant ranks with a mil-lion free-men more,
Shout-ing the bat-tle cry of free - dom.

The U - nion for-ev-er, hur-rah, boys, hur-rah!
Down with the trai-tor, up with the star.
While we ral-ly 'round the flag, boys, ral-ly once again,
Shout-ing the bat-tle cry of free - dom.

We wil welcome to our num-bers the loyal, true and brave,
Shout-ing the bat-tle cry of free - dom.
And al-though they may be poor not a man shall be a slave,
Shout-ing the bat-tle cry of free - dom.

The U - nion for-ev-er, hur-rah, boys, hur-rah!
Down with the trai-tor, up with the star.
While we ral-ly 'round the flag, boys, ral-ly once again,
Shout-ing the bat-tle cry of free - dom.

So we're spring-ing to the call from the East and from the West,
Shout-ing the bat-tle cry of free - dom.
And we'll hurl the Rebel crew from the land we love the best,
Shout-ing the bat-tle cry of free - dom.
