The Veterans Hallelujah Chorus. Air. -- "John Brown." Key of C.

1. Fall in, Comrades, "rally once again!" What we won with bullets, our ballots will maintain; We'll "whoop it up" for Harrison from Oregon to Maine, As we go marching on!

Cho.--Glory, glory hallelujah, shout the Loyal and the True, for The Eagle and the Flag downs the Rooster and the Rag, as we go marching on!

2. Sons join your fathers, of soldier blood you're proud: Mothers and daughters will help to swell the crowd; Songs and shouts for Harrison will echo long and loud, As we go marching on!--Cho.

3. Farmers are with us, for they have brains to tell That closing manufactories cuts off their trade as well, The wages of the worker buy the "truck" they have to sell, As we go marching on!--Cho.

4. Laborers are with us, from bench and forge and shop; For they must have Protection, or see their wages drop! If Europe "floods the markets," our Industries must stop! As we go marching on!--Cho.

5. Men who won our victories, and men who "win" their bread, Men who feed the people, and people who are fed, Raise the shout for Harrison and "boom" him right ahead! As we go marching on!--Cho.

Stand, Patriot, Stand! Chaplain J.H. Lozier. Air: Old Boatman's Song. Arr. by Horace Lozier.

win this mill with McKinley's bill, The next with Bill McKinley.

High-ho! Here we go! To whoop it up for Harrison, *Reid and Co.

  • Note. In repeating the last measure, Glee Clubs in the several states may, if they choose, do as Grover and "General" Stevenson did, when the draft got after them.--put in substitutes for the names "Reid and Co." For example: in Illinois, make it "Private Joe." In Indianna, "Chase and Co." In Michigan, "Rich and Co." In Wisconsin, "Spooner and Co." In Nebraska, "Crounse and Co." In Kansas and New Hampshire, "Smith and Co." In Missouri, "Warner and Co." In Iowa, "Mc' and Co." In Minnesota, "Knute and Co.," In West Va., "Davis and Co." In Conn., "Merwin and Co." In Mass., "Haile and Co." Let McKinley's "Buckeyes" sing In O-H-I-O." And so on, East, West, and everywhere.

We'll Rally to the Flag. Words by the "Silver Chaplain."* Arr. by Ada Lozier Pettyjohn.

1. The bugle call is sounding, we'll rally once again,

2. The "soldier's friends" are they, (if they wore the Rebel gray,)

3. Old Johnny Bull and Grover are yoked together now,

And we'll fight our old enemy oer. And the

The "Premium" Marching Through Georgia. Affectionately inscribed to the N.Y. World. Key of B flat.

1. Bring along that Premium you offered for a song;--Something that would help to jog old Grover's cause along: Something that is "catchy" and "taking" too, and strong:--Something like "Marching through Georgia."

Hurrah, hurrah, you want a jubilee, Hurrah, hurrah, John Bull and Tammany! Harrison is pushing you as lively as when he Proudly was marching through Georgia.

2. Here's a song that "catchy" in just about the way That Grover had a "catchy" spell on "Decoration day," While patriots were honoring the "Boys" who whipped the "Gray," While we were marching through Georgia. Cho.

3. Yes, and it is "witty" too; but never once pretends To match the wit that Grover with a veto message blends. It "flashes" like those Rebel Flags we captured from his friends, While we were marching through Georgia. Cho.

4. Send along that "Premium" as quick as you can do 't! And if our song in some respects should happen not to suit, We'll do as he and Adlai did, just "send a Substitute"--While we were marching through Georgia!

Bye, Bye, Old Grover. Words by "The Chaplain." Tune--"Good-bye, my Lover, Good-bye.

1. The boat is coming around the bend! Good-bye, old Grover, good-bye, She's crammed jamfull of Harrison men! Good-bye, old Grover, good-bye.

Cho.--Bye, Grover, bye oh, what makes you sigh so? Bye, Grover, bye oh, good bye, Old Grover, good-bye.

2. She's nearing the White House every minute! Good-bye, old Grover, good-bye. And frankly, old Grover, you are not not in it, Good-bye old Grover, good bye.

Cho.--Bye, Grover, bye oh, how's ammany? oh! Bye, Grover, bye oh, good-bye, old Grover, good-bye.

3. The name of that boat is "Tippecanoe," Good-bye, old Grover, good bye. She's staunch and trim, and she'll "get there," too! Good-bye, old Grover, good-bye.

Cho.--Bye. Grover, bye oh, don't her wheels fly, though! Bye, Grover, bye oh, good-bye old Grover, good-bye.

4. There are lots of soldiers among the crew, Good-bye, Grover, they're after you! Good-bye, old Grover, good-bye.

Cho.-- Bye, Grover, bye oh. If they would die, oh! Bye, Grover, bye oh, good-bye, old Grover, good-bye.

5. You love to veto the "Boys in Blue," Good-bye, old Grover, good-bye, But next November they'll veto you! Good-bye, old Grover, good-bye.

Cho.--Bye, Grover, bye oh, Don't think we lie, oh! Bye, Grover, bye oh, good-bye old Grover, good-bye.

6. You promised "Reform" in '84, Good-bye, old Grover, good-bye, We've sampled your stock and we want no more! Good-bye, old Grover, good-bye.

Cho.--Bye, Grover, bye oh, John Bull with cry, oh! Bye, Grover, bye oh, good bye, old Grover, good-bye.

7. The kind of "Reform" you brought about, Good-bye, old Grover, good bye, Was the Rebels in and the Soldiers out, Good-bye, old Grover, good-bye.

Cho.--Bye, Grover, bye oh, how's that for high, oh! Bye, Grover, bye oh, good-bye, old Grover, good-bye.

8. But not content with the blunders made, Good-bye, old Grover, good-bye, You bob up again with your fool "Free Trade"! Good-bye, old Grover, good-bye.

Cho.--Bye, Grover, bye oh, Farmers are shy, oh! Bye, Grover, bye oh, good-bye old Grover, Good-bye.

9. So pack your "Veto" and "Free Trade" tools, Good-bye, old Grover, good-bye. And go a fishing for "suckers" and fools, Good-bye, old Grover, good-bye.

Cho.--Bye, Grover, bye oh, same to Adlai, oh! Salt River's nigh oh, good-bye, old Grover, good-bye.
