OUR FAMILIAR SONGS.
Southrons, hear your country call you! Up! lest worse than death befall you:
To arms! to arms! to arms in Dixie! Lo ! all beacon fires are lighted, Let our hearts be now united :
To arms ! to arms ! to arms in Dixie !
Advance the flag of Dixie!
Hurrah! Hurrah! For Dixie's land we'll take our stand,
To live or die for Dixie! To arms ! To arms!
And conquer peace for Dixie! To arms ! to arms !
And conquer peace for Dixie !
Hear the Northern thunders mutter! Northern flags in south wind flutter!
To arms ! to arms ! to arms in Dixie! Send them back your fierce defiance ! Stamp upon the cursed alliance !
To arms ! to arms in Dixie ! Advance the flag of Dixie !
Fear no danger! shun no labor! Lift up rifle, pike, and sabre!
To arms ! to arms! to arms in Dixie ! Shoulder pressing close to shoulder, Let the odds make each heart bolder:
To arms ! to arms ! to arms in Dixie ! Advance the flag of Dixie!
How the South's great heart rejoices, At your cannon's ringing voices:
To arms! to arms! to arms in Dixie ! For faith betrayed and pledges broken, Wrongs inflicted, insults spoken :
To arms! to arms ! to arms in Dixie ! Advance the flag of Dixie!
Strong as lions, swift as eagles,
Back to their kennels hunt these beagles !
To arms ! to arms ! to arms in Dixie! Cut the unequal bonds asunder! Let them hence each other plunder:
To arms! to arms ! to arms in Dixie ! Advance the flag of Dixie!
Swear upon your country's altar, Never to give up or falter;
To arms! to arms ! to arms in Dixie ! Till the spoilers are defeated, Till the Lord's work is completed,
To arms! to arms ! to arms in Dixie ! Advance the flag of Dixie !
Halt not till our Federation,
Secures among earth's powers its station!
To arms ! to arms ! to arms in Dixie ! Then at peace, and crowned with glory, Hear your children tell the story !
To arms ! to arms ! to arms in Dixie ! Advance the flag of Dixie !
If the loved ones weep in sadness, Victory soon shall bring them gladness.
To arms! to arms! to arms in Dixie! Exultant pride soon banish sorrow; Smiles chase tears away to-morrow.
To arms ! to arms ! to arms in Dixie !
Advance the flag of Dixie 1
Hurrah ! Hurrah ! For Dixie's land we'll take our stand,
To live or die for Dixie !
To arms ! to arms !
And conquer peace for Dixie !
To arms ! to arms ! And conquer peace for Dixie !
