Off we go into the wild blue yonder,
Climbing high into the sun;
Johnnie, get your gun,
Get your gun, get your gun,
Take it on the run,
On the run, on the run.
Afsted i børn af fædrelandet,
oprunden er nu hæderens dag.
Tyranniet har vi forbandet,
Den bærer en ørn med vingefang,
Vore fædre hørte hans røst engang:
Værg, værg vor Fane!
It’s a long way to Tipperary, it’s a
long way to go;
It’s a long way to Tipperary to the
sweetest girl I know!

ORDERS SOLDIERS TO LEARN SONG

"The Battle Song of Liberty" Subject of Unusual Command by Regimental Chief With Expeditionary Forces in France Walter Jacobs' new march song, "The Battle Song of Liberty," bids fair to become eminently distinguished as a result of the manner in which it has been accepted by Uncle Sam's fighting

Title Page of "The Battle Song of Liberty" forces in France. Mr. Jacobs received recently at his Boston office a letter from Chas. B. Tyler, band leader, Twenty-eighth United States Infantry, with the American Expeditionary forces in Paris, France, inclosing a copy of a memorandum placed upon the regimental bulletin board. The memorandum included the words of the verse and chorus of "The Battle Song of Liberty," as follows:

It’s the roar and rattle of Freedom’s battle
That’s calling us over the sea,
Where a mighty foe has challenged us, boys
It’s up to you and to me;
So get Old Glory, we’ll make ’em sorry
That they ever dreamed of this fight.
We’re on our way with a Hip! Hooray!
Just to do what we know to be right.


So here’s to Uncle Sammy faithful and true;
Here’s to our banner of red, white and blue;
And here’s to all good fellows on land and sea
Singing the Battle Song of Liberty.


So here’s to Uncle Sammy faithful and true;
Here’s to our banner of red, white and blue;
And here’s to all good fellows on land and sea
Singing the Battle Song of Liberty.

The verses were followed by the order: "The commanding officer directs that the above'copy be furnished to all organizations of the regiment, and that a copy be posted on company bulletin boards, in order that every man can memorize the 'Battle Song of Liberty.' (Signed) Hugh L. Parker, Captain Twenty-eighth Infantry, Admtant."
