Song

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

Come, brothers, shout his name,
His laureled deeds proclaim,
In song and glee;
Who showed his worth in fight
And deeds of power and might,
When War's dark hours, like night,
Enwrapt the Free.

Dauntless he met the foe,
And dealt for us a blow,
When hopes were slim;
For such high valor, then
Columbia's sons again
Will shout from mount and glen,
'Hail to him.'

A nation's anthem sounds
From the Western prairie grounds
And Eastern hills;
We hear its echoing cry
Along the vaulted sky,
Where Freedom's banner high,
Gleams as it fills.
