Nail our flag to the mast! that all nations may know It floats over freemen who ll ever defend it, Will ne er haul it down, though o erwhelming the foe, Though the smoke may enshroud, though the war-hail may rend it. When the smoke clears away At the close of the fray, Our flag, though in tatters, well proudly display And e en though we sink, still unconquered at last, Well sink neath the wave with flag nailed to the mast.
