TUNE. -- Brothers will you meet me.
John Brown’s body lies a-mouldering in the grave;
John Brown’s body lies a-mouldering in the grave!
His soul’s marching on!
Glory, halle – hallelujah! Glory, halle – hallelujah!
Glory, halle – hallelujah! his soul’s marching on!
He’s gone to be a soldier in the army of the Lord!
John Brown’s knapsack is strapped upon his back!
His pet lambs will meet him on the way;
They go marching on!
They will hang Jeff. Davis to a tree!
As they march along!
Now, three rousing cheers for the Union;
As we are marching on!
