[32] Where the Rappahannock runs,
The sulphur-throated guns
Poured out hail and fire;
But the heroes in the boats
Heeded not the sulphur-throats,
For they looked up higher, higher;
While the drum,
Never dumb,
Beat, beat, beat,
Till our oars
Touch the shores,
And the feet, feet, feet,
Of the soldiers on the shore, with the bayonet and gun,
Though the drum could beat no more, made the dastard rebels run,
The dastard rebels run,
Run, run, run.
