Marching Along

Music and lyrics byWilliam B. Bradbury





The army is gath'ring from near and from far;
The trumpet is sounding the call for the war;
McClellan's our leader, he's gallant and strong;
We'll gird on our armor and be marching along.

chorus:
Marching along, we are marching along,
Gird on the armor and be marching along;
McClellan's our leader, he's gallant and strong;
For God and for country we are marching along.

2. The foe is before us in battle array,
But let us not waver or turn from the way;
The Lord is our strength and the Union's our song;
With courage and faith we are marching along.
chorus:

3. Our wives and our children we leave in your care,
We fell you will help them with sorrow to bear;
'Tis hard thus to part, but we hope 'twon't be long,
We'll keep up our heart as we're marching along.

chorus:

4. We sigh for our country, we mourn for our dead,
For them now our last drop of blood we will shed;
Our cause is the right one - our foe's in the wrong;
Then gladly we'll sing as we're marching along.

chorus:

5. The flag of our country is floating on high,
We'll stand by that flag till we conquer or die;
McClellan's our leader, he's gallant and strong,
We'll gird on our armor and be marching along.

chorus:
