"The Workingmen's Army" (karaoke)

"The Workingmen's Army" (sheet music)


When rebel shot and rebel shell burst open Sumter's wall,

When honest Abr'ham Lincoln's voice aroused the people all,

Gen'ral Butler was the first who answered Lincoln's call

To lead on the great Union army.

 

Hurrah! Hurrah! Hurrah for liberty!

Hurrah! Hurrah! We workingmen are free!

We've burst the bonds of party like those of slavery

And joined the workingmen's army!

 

And there's now another army, fighting for another cause,

Striving to get fair and just and equitable laws;

And Butler, tried and true, is now again, as then he was,

Commanding the workingmen's army.

 

Hurrah! Hurrah! Hurrah for liberty!

Hurrah! Hurrah! We workingmen are free!

We've burst the bonds of party like those of slavery

And joined the workingmen's army!

 

He'll push aside from pow'r and place, with strong avenging hand,

The sordid politician who would desecrate the land;

He'll burst the rings and make this nation pure and free and grand

With his brave, fearless workingmen's army.

 

Hurrah! Hurrah! Hurrah for liberty!

Hurrah! Hurrah! We workingmen are free!

We've burst the bonds of party like those of slavery

And joined the workingmen's army!
