Come all ye men of every state, Our creed is broad and fair; Buchanan is our candidate, And we'll put him in the White House Chair. Chorus: Then come ye men from ev'ry state, Our creed is broad and fair; Buchanan is our candidate, And we'll put him in the White House Chair. Let all our hearts for union be, For the North and south are one; They've worked together manfully, And together they will still work on. We'll have no dark designing band To rule with secret sway; We'll give to all a helping hand, And be open as the light of day. We'll not outlaw the land that holds The bones of Washington; Where Jackson fought and Marion bled, And the battles of the brave were won.
