Lyrics: T. Phillips Thompson.
Tune: T. Phillips Thompson.


Our patriot sires in days of old
Threw off the Briton’s sway.
Americans were free and bold.
Where are their sons today?
Our wrongs are greater a thousand fold
Than were our fathers’ then.

Then, rouse and rally by hill and valley
And claim our rights as men.
Then, rouse and rally by hill and valley
And claim our rights as men.

Despotic power, oppressive laws,
Our fathers brave defied
And baffled in their country’s cause
The lion in his pride.
And shall we cower before the wolf,
The usurer in his den?

No! Rouse and rally by hill and valley
And claim your rights as men.
No! Rouse and rally by hill and valley
And claim your rights as men.

The money kings now rule the land
While men of freedom dream.
They crush the poor with iron hand
And boast their power supreme.
But liberty will yet revive
To bless the land again.

So rouse and rally by hill and valley
And claim your rights as men.
So rouse and rally by hill and valley
And claim your rights as men.

The broad and fertile plains which stretch
Their leagues of golden grain
Enrich some greedy, thievish wretch
Who profits by our pain.
Let each true heart resent the wrong
With voice and vote and pen

And rouse and rally by hill and valley
And claim your rights as men.
And rouse and rally by hill and valley
And claim your rights as men.
