Greenback Battle Song.

43

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

Air: -- John Brown's Hymn.

Thro' the National dominion it is now the rising call,
Down with banks and bonded interest which the markets so appal.
And restore a just taxation by an equal law for all,
As we go marching on.

CHORUS: -- Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
As we go marching on.

44

We have sworn by the Eternal, on the green and sodded graves,
Of our many martyred soldiers who were bravest of the braves,
That well have the money weapons which emancipated slaves,
As we go marching on.

CHORUS.

Down with railroad schemes that flourish by the craft of legal steals.
From the earnings of the millions in the factories and fields.
That compel starvation prices till the strikers stop the wheels,
As we go marching on.

CHORUS.

Lift up then then the starry banner, let it float o'er land and sea,
As the sign of human justice and of righteousness to be,
For the Greenback of our nation shall secure our liberty,
As we go marching on.

CHORUS.
