Election - the People's Right While some on rights and some on wrongs Prefer their own reflections The people's right demand our song The right of free elections. The people's right demands our song The right of free elections. For government and order's sake, And law's important sections, Let's all stand by the ballot box, For freedom of elections. Each town and county's wealth and peace, Its trade and all connections, With science, arts must all increase, By fair and free elections. Then thwart the schemes of fighting lands And traitor disaffections, Stand up with willing heart and hands, For fair and free elections. Should enemies beset us round Of foreign fierce complexions, Undaunted we can stand our ground, Upheld by free elections. Elections are to make us laws For trade, peace and protection, Who fails to vote forsakes the cause Of fair and free elections. Printed in Silverman, American History Songbook SOF
