SONG OF THE BORDER.
Air " Bonnie Dundee.''''
TO the heart of the nation the booming guns
spoke, While the true flag went down in the fire and the
smoke; And the grim walls of Sumter yet echoed the fray, When the Loyalists rushed where the Stars led the
way. Chorus Then fight for the Stripes, boys, and fight for the Stars ! Confounded be treason! torn down be
the Bars ! Let foul traitors tremble, and Rebels
grow pale, As the banner of the Union floats out on the gale !
Though the land of the cypress its vandals sends
forth, They are met in the path by the hosts of the North: Toward the troopers that spring from the cotton-banked stream, With the fires of just vengeance our bayonets gleam.
Then fight, &c. 20
