61

Song performed by: Dean Potter (vocals) and Tara Dirst (piano). Recording engineer: Matt Dotson.

AIR -- "John Brown"

From the Indianapolis Sun.

When Greenbacks were abundant our people lived at ease,
Prosperity on every hand as leaves upon the trees,
We demand their restoration or we'll raise a mighty breeze,
As we go marching along,

CHORUS -- Oh, glory, glory, hallelujah.
Glory, glory, glory, hallelujah,
Oh, glory, glory, hallelujah;
As we go marching along.

Corrupt John Sherman's policy brought misery to our land,
And wretchedness and poverty are seen on every hand,
This terrible contraction is more than we can stand,
As we go marching along,

CHORUS -- Oh, glory, glory, hallelujah, etc.

The morning light is breaking, the darkness disappears,
Old parties now are shaking with penitential fears,
Republicans and Democrats, we've got you by the ears,
As we go marching along.

CHORUS -- Glory, glory, hallelujah etc.

We'll rally to the ballot-box, proclaim that we are free,
Disperse the proud usurpers upon the land and sea,
We'll burst the chains of bondage, proclaim the jubilee,
As we go marching along.

CHORUS -- Glory, glory, hallelujah, etc.
