Songs That Every Child Should Know 129
And here's to brave Virginia! the Old Dominion
State With the young Confederacy at length has link'd
her fate; Impell'd by her example, now other States prepare To hoist on high the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears a
Single Star. Hurrah! Hurrah! for Southern Rights, etc.
Then cheer, boys, cheer, and raise the joyous shout, For Arkansas and North Carolina now have both
gone out; And let another rousing cheer for Tennessee be
given, The Single Star of the Bonnie Blue Flag has grown
to be eleven. Hurrah! Hurrah! for Southern Rights, etc.
Then here 's to our Confederacy, strong we are and
brave, Like patriots of old, we '11 fight our heritage to save; And rather than submit to shame, to die we would
prefer, So cheer for the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears a Single Star. Hurrah! Hurrah ! for Southern Rights, hurrah! Hurrah! for the Bonnie Blue Flag has gain'd th' Eleventh Star.
