The Freemen of the North

TUNE - Auld Lang Syne.

WHILE Kansas' murdered freemen lie
On every sunny plain,
And blazing homes light up her sky
Like death-fires for the slain;
While Southern treason rages high,
And grows the deadly feud,
The North sends back her battle-cry
We will not be subdued!

The South may send her champions out,
Her cowards armed with canes,
The freemen of the North fear not
Her tyrants or her chains;
And when she lifts her red right hand
With brothers' blood imbued,
We scorn her boasting and her threats
We will not be subdued!
