American Ballads and Folk Songs
Chorus:
Hold on, Abraham, never say die to your Uncle Sam, Uncle Sam's boys are coming right along, six hundred thousand strong.
Our flag shall float o'er Dixie, o'er Dixie, o'er Dixie,
Our flag shall float o'er Dixie, the Red, the White, the Blue,
We'll ne'er give up till Dixie, till Dixie, till Dixie,
We'll ne'er give up till Dixie sings "Yankee Doodle Doo."
General Grant he's in Dixie, in Dixie, in Dixie,
General Grant he's in Dixie and ready for the foe.
Do you think he'll give up in Dixie, in Dixie?
Do you think he'll give up Dixie? Oh, no, no, no, no, no, no,' NO!
Our friends have gone to Dixie, to Dixie, to Dixie,
Our friends have gone to Dixie to fight for the dear Old Flag.
And we're all going to Dixie, to Dixie, to Dixie,
And we're all going to Dixie to stand by the dear Old Flag.
Our Halleck's bound for Dixie, for Dixie, for Dixie, with a million
boys or two. He'll never give up old Dixie till she's back in the Union true. Bold Kenney fell in Dixie, in Dixie, in Dixie, while fighting for us all. And there is General Burnside, our Burnside, old Burnside, He will avenge his fall.
And where is General Butler, our Butler, old Butler, And where is Picayune Butler? He's gone to Dixie town. And there he keeps a-stirring, a-stirring, a-stirring, And there he keeps a-stirring the Secesh up and down.
Brave comrades have come from Dixie, from Dixie, from Dixie* Brave comrades have come from Dixie to speed the Cause along They're going back to Dixie, to Dixie, to Dixie, They're going back to Dixie, with a brigade full and strong.
