The Noble Charles Stewart
Tune—“Kate Kearney”

YOU’VE heard of bold Commodore Stewart,
The seamen, the statesmen, the true heart;
In the war, from his arm, our foes fled in alarm,
For strong was the blow of brave Stewart.
In peace the states’ cares ever bind him,        5
In war like a lion we find him,
And the foeman can tell of the patriot spell
That warms the true soul of brave Stewart.
O, oft may you meet with noble Stewart,
The tar with the free and the true heart,        10
A bright welcome smile, and a soul free from guile,
You’ll find in the hero Charles Stewart.
A commander both generous and brave too,
Who risk’d his life others to save, too,
And thousands that roam, by his neat Jersey home,        15
Bless the kind heart of gallant Charles Stewart.
