We'll make a way for kansas free, free, free,
To join the States;
And this we mean to put right through
By choosing Fremont and Dayton, too,
By choosing Fremont and Dayton, too;
And with them we'll beat old Buchan!
We should, will and can --
And with them we'll beat old Buchan!

At last it's found there is a North, North, North,
Who'll right her wrongs,
And carry freedom o'er the West,
With col. Fremont and Dayton, too,
With Col. Fremont and Dayton, too;
And with them we'll beat old Buchan!
We should, will and can, --
And with them we'll beat old Buchan!
We do not mean Buck's Ostend brags, brags, brags,
Shall kick up war;
We'll keep our Union's honor bright,
By dealing justly in all we do,
With Col. Fremont and Dayton, too;
And with them we'll beat old Buchan!
We should, we will, we can, --
And with them we'll beat old Buchan!
We warn that Mormon's Gov'nor Brigham, Brigham, Brigham,
he must step out!
he cannot say,"I'll take my time,"
To col. Fremont and Dayton too;
For they will be sure to put him through;
And with them we'll beat old Buchan!
We should , we will, we can-
And with them we'll beat old Buchan!
