Columbia calls

Description: Columbia calls Enlist now for U.S. Army Nearest Recruiting Station Columbia calls Dedicated to the people of the United States Awake! Ye men from dreams of peace-- Nor sleep when danger's near. But fling Old Glory to the breeze-- There are no cowards here! Our fathers fought; like heroes died. For years their blood they gave That honor, home and Peace be ours; Awake! Thy country save! Our flag for honor ever stands To lift the weak, to lead the free. America, our blessed land, Is calling, calling thee. From North to South; from Sea to Sea, I hear the answering cry; "Thy sons forever shall be free For thee will live and die!" Then fling Old Glory to the main Beneath her stars enroll. For cowardice shall never stain The glory of her folds. The Stars and Stripes shall lead us on A mighty host for right-- That Peace shall reign forevermore And war from Earth take flight.
