Abraham Lincoln's 1860 campaign song as performed by Ronnie Gilbert.

Closed captioned for the hearing impaired.

Hurrah for the choice of the nation
Our chieftain so brave and so true
We'll go for the great reformation
For Lincoln and liberty too

We'll go for the son of Kentucky
The hero of hoosierdom through
The pride of the suckers so lucky
For Lincoln and liberty too

Then up with the banner so glorious
The star-spangled red white and blue
We'll fight till our banner's victorious
For Lincoln and liberty too

Come all you true friends of the nation
Attend to humanity's call
Come aid in the slaves' liberation
And roll on the liberty ball

And roll on the liberty ball
And roll on the liberty ball
Come, aid in the slaves' liberation
And roll on the liberty ball

We'll finish the temple of freedom
And make it capacious within
For all who seek shelter may find it
Whatever the hue of their skin

Whatever the hue of their skin
Whatever the hue of their skin
For all who seek shelter may find it
Whatever the hue of their skin

Success to the old-fashioned doctrine
That men are created all free
And down with the power of the despot
Wherever his stronghold may be

Wherever his stronghold may be
Wherever his stronghold may be
And, down with the power of the despot
Wherever his stronghold may be
