64 SONG OF THE ANDERSON ZOUAVES.
Then Anderson, faithful forever,
Called forward, to lead in the van, Those who will dishonor him never,
His Zouaves, his invincible clan. Then strike for home, country, and glory —
For loved ones we always strike true : His name lives forever in story
Who falls 'neath " the red, white, and blue."
The cup — not the wine-cup — bring hither,
Salt tears fill it up to the brim ; It is wreathed with no wreath that will wither —
The prayers of our loved ne'er grow dim. Thus pledge we our Patron and Heaven,
As patriots, brave, pure, and true: To our country shall Sumter be given,
Or we fall 'neath " the red, white, and blue." Three cheers for the Anderson Zouaves ! Three cheers for the Anderson Zouaves ! Our flag shall yet wave over Sumter, Placed there by the Anderson Zouaves.
