Hard Times in Dixie
(words, M.K.; Music, Eugarps)

Hear the mournful music swell,
  It's hard times in Dixie!
Hear Rebellion's fun'ral knell!
  Hard times in Dixie!
Ev'rything is going wrong,
Rations short and faces long,
And the burden of their song
  Is hard up in Dixie.

cho: Rations up and funds so low,
     Foemen come and niggers go,
     Worst of all the Yankees know
     We're hard up in Dixie!

Grant is close upon their track
  It's hard times in Dixie!
Southern fire won't turn him back
  Hard times in Dixie!
With his heroes tested well
What cares he for shot and shell
Southern brag or Southern swell
    They're hard up in Dixie!

Uncle Abe don't flinch a bit
   For hard times in Dixie!
Tough as any rail he's split
   Hard up in Dixie!
Holding out his honest hands
Welcoming all loyal bands
Abraham well understands
  They're hard up in Dixie!

Butler with his soldiers true
  Makes hard times in Dixie!
When he came the Rebels knew
  Hard times in Dixie!
Johnny Reb don't see the fun
Want begins and credit's done
White man works and darkey runs
  They're hard up in Dixie!

Beat the drum and toll the bell
  For hard times in Dixie!
Chant Rebellion's fun'ral knell
  Hard times in Dixie!
And while over land and sea
Floats the banner of the free
Traitors shall forever be
  Hard up in Dixie!
