Listen to the song

For Lincoln and Liberty Too


Hurrah for the choice of the nation.
Our chieftain so brave and so true.
We'll go for the great re-formation.
For Lincoln and liberty too.
We'll go for the son of Kentucky
The hero of hoosierdom thru.
The pride of the suckers so lucky
for Lincoln and liberty too.

They'll find what by fellin and maulin
Our rail maker statesman can do
For the people are every where calling
for Lincoln and liberty too.
Then up with the banner so glorious
The star spangled red white and blue
We'll fight till our banners victorious
For Lincoln and liberty too. 

Our David's good sling is unerring,
The Slavocrat's giant he slew,
Then shout for the freedom preferring,
For Lincoln and Liberty, too.
We'll go for the son of Kentucky,
The hero of Hoosierdom through,
The pride of the "Suckers" so lucky,
For Lincoln and Liberty, too.

Come all of you, true friends of the nation,
attend to humanity's fall,
Come aid in the slaves' liberation,
And roll on the liberty ball. 
And roll on the liberty ball,
Come aid in the slaves' liberation,
And roll on the liberty ball,

We'll finish the temple of Freedom,
and make it capacious within,
that all who seek shelter may find it,
whatever the hue of their skin,
whatever the hue of their skin,
whatever the hue of their skin,
that all who seek shelter may find it,
whatever the hue of their skin.
