Here you will find the Poem Hurrah for Cooper and Cary of poet Julia A Moore
Air -- "Rally 'Round the Flag, Boys" We will rally in the city, We will gather from the farms, Shouting equalization, Greenbacks a legal tender, Then the poor will get along, The poor that dwell throughout our nation. CHORUS: Three cheers for Cooper and Cary, Hurrah, boys, hurrah; Three cheers for our nation, In peace and in war; If it were not for our laboring men, What would our nation do -- Take this in consideration. It is now one hundred years, Or just one century, Stood grand this good old nation, And our forefathers fought That we may not be a slave -- A slave to the monarchy of England. Revolutionary war was fought With the British, this we hear, To make this an independent nation; We, the independent men, We will not be a slave, To bond-holders in our nation. The Republicans are for gold, And the nation as it is; Take this in consideration. In eighteen seventy-nine Taxes must be paid in gold, If Hayes and Wheeler gain election. The Democrats are for gold, Reform and economy; What better off will be our nation, If Tilden and Hendricks, If they gain the day -- Poor people will come to starvation. Come, freeman, now arise, Put your shoulder to the wheel This Presidential election; Vote for an independent man, One in favor of greenbacks, In this great financial question. Three cheers for Cooper and Cary, May they keep marching on -- Marching with God upon the right, boys, May they conquer o'er their foes And the cursed money rings -- Right will yet conquer might, boys.
