O'er river and lake the sound shall break, and swell with
thundering- glory;
Hurrah for the South! the noble South ! the land of war
and story !
Chorus.
LAND OF THE SOUTH.
By A. F. Leonard.
Air"Friend of My Soul."
Land of the South ! the fairest land
Beneath Columbia's sky ! Proudly her hills of freedom stand,
Her plains in beauty lie. Her dotted fields, her traversed streams
Their annual wealth renew; Land of the South! in brightest dreams
No dearer spot we view.
Flag of the South ! aye, fling its folds
Upon the kindred breeze; Emblem of dread to tyrant holds—
Of freedom on the seas, Forever may its stars and stripes
In cloudless glory wave ; Red, white, and blue—eternal types
Of nations free and brave !
