CIVIL WAR MEDLEY.

*******************************************************

In the prison cell I sit

Thinking Mama Dear of you,

And our bright and shiney home so far away.

Though the tears they fill my eyes

Spite of all that I can do,

Though I try to cheer my comrades and be gay [chorus].

_______________________________________________________

CHORUS: Tramp! Tramp! Tramp! The Boys are marching,

Cheer up comrades they will come!

And beneath the Stary Flag

We shall breathe the air again

In the Free Lands of our own beloved homes!

_______________________________________________________

At the battle front we stood

When their fiercest charge they made,

And they swept us off a hundred men or more.

But before we'd reached their lines

They were beaten back, dismayed;

And we heard the cries of victory o'er and o'er!

[chorus]

_______________________________________________________

So within this prison cell

We are waiting for the day

When they come and open wide the Iron Door!

And our hallowed Eyes be bright

and our poor hearts they'll be gay,

When we think of seeing home and friend once more.

[chorus]

*******************************************************

As we rally 'round the Flag boys

We'll ralley once again,

Shouting the battle cries of freedom.

We'll rally from the hillsides,

We'll rally from the plains,

Shouting the battle cries of freedom.

Up with the Union,

Hurrah Boys, Hurrah!

Down with the traitors,

And up with the Stars.

As we ralley for Old Abe, boys

We'll ralley once again,

Shouting the battle cries of freedom.

*******************************************************

BRING THAT GOOD OL' BUGLE BOYS

We'll sing another song.

Sing it with the spirit

That will start the world along

Sing it like we use to sing it fifty thousand strong,

While we were marching through Georgia. [chorus]

_______________________________________________________

CHORUS: Hurrah! Hurrah!

We'll join the jubilee.

Hurrah! Hurrah!

The Flag that makes us free.

While we sang this chorus from Atlanta to the sea,

While we were marching through Georgia.

_______________________________________________________

YES THERE WERE MANY UNION BOYS

Who shed some joyful tears,

Whenever they saw that honored flag

They hadn't seen in years.

Hardly could they be restrained from loud and joyful tears,

While we were marching through Georgia. [chorus]

*******************************************************

Mine eyes have seen the Glory

Of the coming of our Lord

He is trampling through the vintage,

Where his Grapes of Wrath are stored

He has loosed the faithful lightning

Of His Terrible Swift Sword.

His Truth is marching on! [chorus]

_______________________________________________________

CHORUS: Glory, Glory Hallelujah! (3x)

His truth is marching on.

_______________________________________________________

I have seen Him in the watchfires

Of a hundred circling camps.

They have builded Him an altar,

In the evening dews and damps.

I have read His righteous sentence

By the dim and glaring lamps.

Our day goes marching on! [chorus]
