Hold the Fort for Hayes and Wheeler (Mary E. Kail) Float aloft the starts of freedom, Upward toward the sky; Freemen rally 'round the standard For the time is nighm cho: Hold the fort for Hayes and Wheeler While their pulses thrill Loyal men in solid column Answer back, "We will!" When to save our glorious country We must brave the storm; Vote for Hayes and reformation, Wheeler and reform! Honor to our loyal commanders Let the echo run, Unto every kindred nation Now beneath the sun. Sound aloud the good-time coming, Sound the trump of fame; They, who lead us on to glory, Boast an honored name. While a golden light is beaming Heralding the morn; Vote for Hayes and reformation Wheeler and reform. On to vict'ry! Onward! Onward! With our flag in sight, We shall have a full surrender Voting for the right. RG APR99
