CIVIL WAR SONGS

Greeting Ode ~ Lyrics

Sing while the recruit is signing the roll.

Air--"GLORY HALLELUJAH."

Warm be the welcome and glad be the cheer
Greeting our comrades who join with us here--
Warm as in days when with never a fear
We all went marching on.

CHORUS.

Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
We all go marching on.

Held by fraternity in bonds that are sure,
Drawn close in charity by ties that are pure,
Filled with a loyalty that ever shall endure,
We still go marching on.

CHORUS.--Glory, glory, hallelujah, etc.

Elbow to elbow we stood through the fight,
Elbow to elbow we stand here tonight,
Elbow to elbow till heaven is in sight,
We all go marching on.

CHORUS.--Glory, glory, hallelujah, etc.
