CAMPAIGN CLOSING SONG.

Air --- America.
Song performed by: Leslie Beukelman (vocals) and Tara Dirst (banjo). Recording engineer: Matt Dotson.

Long may this union be
From ruling tyrants free,
This is our prayer,
And this shall be our aim,
That we may ne'er again
Have dark corruption stain
Our nation's chair.

Then let us e'er we part,
Resolve from honest hearts,
We'll persevere,
And place in chair of state,
Lincoln the truly great,
Then for the Union's fate
No more we'll fear.
