"Campaign Song And Chorus."

Boys in Blue will see it through,
And send to Washington,
The candidates who have been true,
And have their laurels won;
In Gen'ral Rutherford B. Hayes,
We have an honest man,
And Wheeler has such upright ways,
We're bound to lead the van.

(CHORUS:)
The Boys in Blue will see it through,
And conquer in the fight,
Our candidates are firm and true,
And work for truth and right.

Boys in Blue will see it through,
And win the coming fray,
They'll battle as they used to do
To carry well the day;
The North and South, the East and West
Will rally to the front,
And all will do their very best
To make the "Demmies" grunt.

(CHORUS)

Boys in Blue will see it through,
For old Ohio's son,
They'll surely give him what is due
Two votes to Tilden's one;
We'll have no Democratic pow'r
While pluck and vim remains,
So let us labor ev'ry hour,
Till Hayes gets hold the reins.

(CHORUS)
