"REMEMBER THE MAINE."


Americans, patriotic and true,
"Remember the Maine!"
Which sailed from our own loved coasts away,
On a sunny February day,
Bedecked with "Old Glory" bright and gay.

Americans, patriotic and true,
"Remember the Maine!"
Remember the two hundred and sixty men
Who left on our dear beloved Maine,
And never did return again.

Americans, patriotic and true,
"Remember the Maine!"
Remember the many sad good-byes,
Remember the many weeping eyes,
Remember the many heartaches and sighs.

Americans, patriotic and true,
"Remember the Maine!"
Remember the widows now left alone,
Remember the orphans, too, without home,
Remember the mother bereft of her son,

Americans, patriotic and true,
"Remember the Maine!"
Remember that sad memorial day,
When 'neath the waves of Havana bay
With loved ones aboard she sank away.

Americans, patriotic and true,
"Remember the Maine!"
Remember haughty, heartless and hateful Spain,
Whose treacherous trick caused such endless pain,
Who caused the loss of our dearly loved Maine.
