The Battle of the Thames.

41

TUNE — "The Battle of the Nile."

Arise! arise! sons of the west arise,
And join in the shout of the Patriot throng,
Arise! arise! sons of the west arise,
And let freedom's walls re-echo with your song.
For he will lead us on
Who did lead us years ago,
When he trod a foreign soil,
Wreaking vengeance on the foe,

CHORUS.
And the battle of the Thames, as every tongue proclaims,
And the battle of the Thames, as every tongue proclaims,
Shall ever live in history, in poetry and song.
Huzza! huzza! huzza! huzza! huzza, boys,
For him who fought for us, and never was known to yield.
Huzza! huzza! huzza! huzza! huzza, boys,
Our Harrison again will win the field.

Arise! arise! sons of the west arise,
Your brethren of the east, are arousing in their might;
Arise! arise! sons of the West arise,
And be ready now to aid them in the fight;

42

For he will be our chief,
Who when danger was at hand,
To the frontier brought relief,
With his gallant western band.
And the Battle of the Thames, &c.

Arise! arise! sons of the west arise!
Your liberties maintaining, your country now befriend,
Arise! arise! sons of the west arise,
And gather round the farmer of North Bend;
For he will bring us aid,
Who was aide to gallant Wayne,
When the Indian's yell was heard,
From every hill and plain,
And the battle of the Thames, &c.
