Will you go! will you go!
For freedom's struggling cry,
In the name of God most high,
To rescue her or die.
Will you go! will you go!

Will you stay! will you stay!
While the coil is tighter bound,
And the tyrant on our ground
Plants his foot with dismal sound.
Will you stay! will you stay!

Will you go! will you go!
Where our dying brothers call,
As they bleed and bravely fall,
To free us from this thrall.
Will you go! will you go!

Will you stay! will you stay
And let the silent grave
Reproach you for the brave,
Who have died our land to save.
Will you stay I will you stay!

Will you go! will you go!
The brow of boyhood bared,
With the old and hoary-haired,
Have the darkest perils dared.
Will you go! will you go!

Will you stay! will you stay I
Slaves of a tyrant's chain,
Slaves ever to remain,
In dishonor's deepest stain.
Will you stay! will you stay!

Will you go! will you go!
Answer yes or answer no,
For soon the fatal blow
Will descend for weal or woe.
Will you go! will you go!

Will you stay! will you stay!
Then may eternal gloom,
Draped by the hand of doom,
For ever shroud your tomb.
can you stay! Can you stay!
