WE SWEAR.
Louisville Courier. Kneel, ye Southrons, kneel and swear,
On your bleeding- country's altar, All the tyrants' rage to dare, E'en the cursed tyrants' halter,
We swear, we swear, we swear!
Swear by all the shining- stars, Swear in blunt old Anglo-Saxon,
To defend the stars and bars Hallowed by the blood of Jackson, We swear, etc.
Swear by all the noble deeds,
By heroic valor prompted ; Swear that while our country bleeds,
Gleaming blndes shall not be wanted, We swear, etc.
Swear our country shall be free ;
Submit to subjugation ? Never ! Swear the stars and bars shall be
Our insignia forever,                         v
We swear, etc.
