    Poor men have grown to be rich men,
    And rich men grown to be poor again,
    And I am running to Paradise;
    And many a darling wit’s grown dull

    Now it has filled an old sock full....

    The despot’s heel is on thy shore,
    Maryland!
    His torch is at thy temple door,

    That flecked the streets of Baltimore,
    And be the battle-queen of yore,
    Maryland! my Maryland!
