GATHERING SONG.
Air"Bonnie Blue Flag." By Annie C. Ketchcm.
Come, brothers ! rally for the right I
The bravest of the brave Sends forth her ringing battle-cry
Beside the Atlantic wave ! She leads the way in honor's path!
Come, brothers, near and far, Come rally 'round the Bonnie Blue Flag
That bears a single star!
We've borne the Yankee trickery,
The Yankee gibe and sneer, Till Yankee insolence and pride
Know neither shame nor fear; But ready now, with shot and steel,
Their brazen front to mar, We hoist aloft the Bonnie Blue Flag
That bears a single star!
Now Georgia marches to the front,
And close beside her come Her sisters by the Mexique Sea,
With pealing trump and drum! Till, answering back from hill and glen,
The rallying cry afar, A Nation hoists the Bonnie Blue Flag
That bears a single star!
