30 SONGS OF THE SOLDIERS AND SAILORS.
36. THEY MADE IT TWICE AS NICE AS PARADISE AND THEY CALLED IT DIXIELAND.
(A Paeody.)
We're mighty proud that we are southern,
And mighty glad we are to know That our fathers always did their part
In the days of long ago; And now when world-wide war clouds gather
O'er the land of the brave and the free, Keep your " eagle " eye on Dixie,
And I'll tell you what you're bound to see: When the bugle sounds the call to arms,
They will hear from Dixieland, From all the offices and stores and farms,
They will come from Dixieland. You can take this tip from me, That the soul of " Sixty-three," Will never be forgotten in the land of cotton, By the sons of the men of Lee; And you will see us rebels marching forth,
Arm in arm and breast to breast. With all the gallant sons of the Yankee North,
And those from the East and West; For we are hard to stop, and we're quick to
start, When glory joins with duty in the Southern heart, Let anyone get gay with the U. S. A. And the South will do her part.
