The Ballot Battle

60

AIR -- Wait for the Wagon.

YE brave New England freemen!
Hasten, one and all!
Come rally round your standard!
With it rise or fall!
Wait for election --
Wait for election --
Wait for election --
Then rally one and all!

Long, much too long hath freedom
Borne the tyrant's might,
And now the time is coming
For triumphant right!
Wait for election, &c.

Fair Liberty, though bleeding,
"Pierced" with coward dart,
Undaunted still is pleading
To each valiant heart.
Wait for election, &c.

Her bloody brow uncovered,
See! on Bunker's height
She bids New England valor
Battle for the right!
Wait for election, &c.

61

Our mountains e'en are shouting,
"Fremont! to the van!"
And thousand true hearts echo
Honor to the man.
Wait for election, &c.

Honor to the dauntless heart,
Faithful, true and bold,
Who erst 'gainst men and nature
Conquered the land of gold.
Wait for election, &c.

E'en so shall FREMONT conquer
Slavery's tower of night,
While Day-ton's light is beaming
Upon the glorious fight!
Wait for election --
Wait for election --
Wait for election --
Then rally one and all!
