NOMINATION SONG

C          F               C             G                7
Come, let's put the ball in motion, let us raise a great commotion,
C       F          C    (Am)      G            7
For the Democratic notion from the old Granite State.
          C                                    G               7
Oh, come forth from hill and valley, from the mountains let us sally
          C                               G            7
Round our candidate we'll rally, from the old Granite State.
         C                      G      7
We're a band of locos, we're a band of locos,
         C                         Am               
We're a band of locos, and we'll shout for Pierce and King!

Franklin Pierce's nomination meets the people's approbation.
'Twas the nicest calculation of the old Virginia State.
Oh, the Whigs are getting weary, for their prospects are but dreary,
There is nothing for them cheerful from the old Granite State.

C       G7          C    G#7                G
Hurrah! hurrah!, hurrah! hurrah! hurrah!, hurrah!
         C                      G         7
We're a band of locos, we're a band of locos,
         C                        G7                   C
We're a band of locos, and we'll shout for Pierce and King

Franklin Pierce's elevation will do honor to the nation,
For he bears that reputation in the old Granite State.
While this story we are telling, oh, we know with rage you're welling,
But the Empire keeps propelling for the old Granite State.

For the Union we're united, and to that our faith is plighted,
For they've sworn to see it righted in the old Granite State.
So you may as well retire, for into your rear we'll fire,
Old Virginia never tires with the old Granite State.

Franklin Pierce, Democrat and 14th President, was born in Hillboro, New
Hampshire.
Democrats used the Motto "We Polked you in 1844; we shall Pierce you in 1852!"
