SOUTHERN WAR-CRY.
Air"Scots, wha hae."
Countrymen of Washington ! Countrymen of Jefferson ! By old Hick'ry oft led on To death or victory !
Sons of men who fought and bled, Whose blood for you was freely shed, Where Marion charged and Sumpter led, For freeman's rights !
From the Cowpens' glorious way, Southron valor led the fray To Yorktown's eventful day, First we were free !
At New Orleans we met the foe; Oppressors fell at every blow; There we laid the usurper low, For maids and wives !
Who on Palo Alto's day, 'Mid fire and hail at Monterey, At Buena Vista, led the way ?
" Rough-and-Ready."
i
Southrons all; at Freedom's call, For our homes united all,
Freemen live, or freemen fall!                             
Death or liberty!
