160                BONNIE BLUE FLAG.
It cannot be dissevered,
Though it cost us bloody wars, We ne'er can give up the land
Where float the Stripes and Stars. Chorus Hurrah ! hurrah!
For equal rights, hurrah ! Hurrah for the good old flag That bears the Stripes and Stars.
We treated you as brothers,
Until you drew the sword, With wrong impious hand at Sumter
You cut the silver cord, So now you hear our bugles,
We come, the sons of Mars; We '11 rally round that brave old flag,
Which bears the Stripes and Stars.
We do not want vour cotton, We care not for your slaves,
But rather than divide this land, We '11 fill your Southern graves.
With Lincoln for our Chieftain, We '11 wear our country's sears ;
We '11 rally round that brave old flag, Which bears the Stripes and Stars.
