THE people are rising for Freedom and Right -
Fremont's the man for the Free -
The ruffians of slavery are trembling with fright -
Fremont's the man for the Free.

Ho! Fremont and Freedom! Fremont's the man!
Fremont and Freedom! Fremont's the man!
Fremont's the man! Fremont's the man!
Fremont's the man for the Free.

In Kansas the sway of the ruffians shall cease-
Fremont's the man for the Free!
And o'er our broad land shall be justice and peace -
Fremont's the man for the Free!

Ho! Fremont and Freedom! etc.
Let Buchaneers quarrel for Cuba and slaves -
Fremont's the man for the Free.
We'll stand for the soil where our starred banner waves -
Fremont's the man for the Free!
Ho! Freemont and Freedom! etc.

Restore the old landmarks the fathers have set-
Fremont's the man for the Free.
We will not be robbed, nor the robbers forget -
Fremont's the man for the Free!
Ho! Fremont and Freedom! etc.

Then rally, boys, rally for justice and right -
Fremont's the man for the Free.
With firmness and courage we're sure of the fight -
Fremont's the man for the Free!
Ho! Fremont and Freedom! etc.
