26. the Stars and Stripes.

Rally round the flag, boys--
     Give it to the breeze!
That's the banner we love,
     On the land and seas.

Brave hearts are under it;
     Let the Traitors brag;
Gallant lads, fire away!
     And fight for the flag.

Their flag is but a rag--
     Ours is the true one;
Up with the Stars and Stripes!
     Down with the new one!

Let our colors fly, boys--
     Guard them day and night;
For Victory is Liberty,
     And God will bless the Right.
