Marching Through Georgia

Marching Through Georgia
H.C. Work

Bring the good old bugle, boys!
We'll sing another song-
Sing it with a spirit that will start the world along-
Sing it as we used to sing it,
Fifty thousand strong,
While we are marching through Georgia.

Hurrah! Hurrah! We bring the Jubilee!
Hurrah! Hurrah! The flag that makes you free!
So we sang the chorus from Atlanta to the sea,
While we were marching through Georgia.

So we make a thoroughfare for freedom and her train,
Sixty miles in latitude - three hundred to the main;
Treason fled before us, for resistance was in vain,
While we were marching through Georgia.
