Lyrics: Elisha E. Hoffman.
Tune: “Tramp, Tramp, Tramp.”


Oh, the days of old are past; we are waking up at last
To the perils that assailed the homes so long!
Things were growing worse and worse, through this bitter, bitter curse,
’Til we vowed to stay this cruel, cruel wrong.

Vote, vote, vote for prohibition.
Vote to banish the saloon.
Let us stay this awful curse, growing every year the worse,
For we have no further use for the saloon.

The saloon men stand aghast while our ranks are filling fast,
And they see the dread handwriting on the wall;
Let us push the work along, fight with steady heart and strong,
And the evil traffic very soon must fall.

Vote, vote, vote for prohibition.
Vote to banish the saloon.
Let us stay this awful curse, growing every year the worse,
For we have no further use for the saloon.

Float your banners in the breeze over lands and over seas,
And let “Home and Native Land” your motto be;
Sing to God a triumph song, and the battle push along,
And the fight will issue soon in victory.

Vote, vote, vote for prohibition.
Vote to banish the saloon.
Let us stay this awful curse, growing every year the worse,
For we have no further use for the saloon.
