THE RED, WHITE, AND BLUE.

David T. Shaw. David T. Shaw.

O, Co - lum-bia, the gem of the o - cean, The home of the brave

2. When war winged its wide des- o - la - tion, And threatened the land

3. Old Glo - ry to greet, now come hither, With eyes full of love


and the free, The shrine of each pa - triot's de - vo - tion, A

to de - form, The ark then of free- dom's foun- da -tion, Co -

to the brim. May the wreaths of our he - roes ne'er wither, Nor a


world of-fers hom- age to Thee. Thy mandates make heroes as-

lum - bia rode safe through the storm; With their gar-lands of vic-t'ry a -

star of our Ban - ner grow dim; May the ser-vice u - nit-ed ne'er

sem - ble, When Lib - er - ty's form stands in view; Thy

round her, When so proudly she bore her brave crew; With her

sev - er. But they to our col - ors prove true; The


ban-ners make tyr - an -ny trem-ble, Three cheers for the Red, White, and Blue,

flag proud-ly float-ing be-fore her, Three cheers for the Red, White, and Blue.

Ar-my and Na - vy forev - er, Three cheers for the Red, White, and Blue.
