No Slave Beneath That Starry Sky

[Word missing] beneath that starry sky the emblem of the free
No [word missing] shall wild [sic] that brand that smites for liberty
No trough of servile armies shall shame Columbia's throne
Yon he who fights for freedoms rights is free for ever more
Chorus No slave beneath stat starry flag the emblem of the free
No fettered hand shall wild [sic] the brand that smites for liberty
No slave beneath those glorious folds stand on our fathers flowers
Where every breath was dark with death but every heart was true
No serfs of earths old empires knelt neath its shadow then
And they who now beneath it bow forever more and and men

Chorus
Go tell the ashes of the braves who at fort hudson fell
Go tell the dust whose [] storm Wagner grounds so well
Go breathe it softly slowly whenere the patriot slave
For right has fled and late the dead he fills a freemans grave

Chorus
Go build which up bondsmen [] that he who fights is free
And let the lake fill every gate that floods in Tennessee
Let all our mighty rivers the strong southwind form
And every wavelett every slave to be a slave no more

Chorus
Go tell the brave of every land whereere that flag has flown
