DEDICATED TO THE Baltimore Light Artillery, CSA By Captain Alexander.
1. The Maryland Boys are coming, Dost hear their stirring drum? Our homes are now before us, Dear mother, we will come. Chorus - March away! March away! The Old Line's bugle yet is sounding, March away! march away! Our hearts with hopes abounding.
2. Old North Point's brilliant story, Still cheers us every man; Our banner led to glory, Waves proudly in the van. Chorus - March away! march away! &c.
3. At Guilford and Long Island, The Old Line stood the shock; Our fathers struck for freedom, And stood firmly as a rock. Chorus - March away! march away! &c.
4. Our mothers, sweethearts, sisters, The fond but absent wife; All look to us for succor, Then strike while there is life. CHORUS - March away! march away! &c.
5. Let our motto be "dear mother," They can kill, but nothing more; Our name will live in story, Then strike for Baltimore! Chorus - March away! march away! &c.
