James Thomas Fields (181781)
Rally round the flag, boys Give it to the breeze! Thats the banner that we bore On the land and seas. Brave hearts are under it, Let the traitors brag, Gallant lads, fire away! And fight for the flag. Their flag is but a rag Ours is the true one; Up with the Stars and Stripes! Down with the new one! Let our colors fly, boys Guard them day and night; For victory is liberty, And God will bless the right.
