WE'LL BE FREE IN MARYLAND.
By R. E. HOLTZ. Air—" Gideon's Band."
The boys down South in Dixie's land, The boys down South in Dixie's land, The boys down South in Dixie's land Will come and rescue Maryland.
Chorus.—If you will join the Dixie band,
Here's my heart and here's my hand, If you will join the Dixie band; We're fighting- for a home.
The Northern foes have trod us down,
The Northern foes have trod us down,
The Northern foes have trod us down,
But we will rise with true renown.
Chorus.
The tyrants they must leave our door, The tyrants they must leave our door, The tyrants they must leave our door, Then we'll be free in Baltimore.
Chorus.
These hirelings they'll never stand, These hirelings they'll never stand, These hirelings they'll never stand, Whenever they see the Southern band.
Chorus.
