Batte Cry For Freedom

By Nate Frimel amd John Hankins

The song is about how the Americans will rally once again and defend themselves. They will get more men and come to battle. They will fight for what the believe in. They will gather and fight for their freedom. The Americans will rally and will fight and win. I believe this song is about coming together as one nation and to take the traitors out of power. Also to make America the glory nation everybody knows it can be. The composer knew it would be hard but we would come out victorious. Then you get the sense of family in the song knowing you can rely on somebody, your brothers fighting next to you.

Union version lyrics:

Yes we’ll rally round the flag, boys, we’ll rally once again,
Shouting the battle cry of freedom, We will rally from the hillside, we’ll gather from the plain, Shouting the battle cry of freedom!

The Union forever! Hurrah, boys, hurrah!
Down with the traitor, up with the star;
While we rally round the flag, boys, rally once again,
Shouting the battle cry of freedom!

We are springing to the call with a million freemen more,
Shouting the battle cry of freedom! And we’ll fill our vacant ranks of our brothers gone before, Shouting the battle cry of freedom!

The Union forever! Hurrah, boys, hurrah!
Down with the traitor, up with the star;
While we rally round the flag, boys, rally once again,
Shouting the battle cry of freedom!

We will welcome to our numbers the loyal, true and brave,
Shouting the battle cry of freedom!
And although he may be poor, he shall never be a slave,
Shouting the battle cry of freedom!

The Union forever! Hurrah, boys, hurrah!
Down with the traitor, up with the star;
While we rally round the flag, boys, rally once again,
Shouting the battle cry of freedom!

So we’re springing to the call from the East and from the West,
Shouting the battle cry of freedom!
And we’ll hurl the rebel crew from the land we love best,
Shouting the battle cry of freedom!
The Union forever! Hurrah, boys, hurrah!
Down with the traitor, up with the star;
While we rally round the flag, boys, rally once again,
Shouting the battle cry of freedom!
