Honor, safety, vengeance call you, Ere the tyrant's chains enthrall you— Cities burning, women wailing! Shall their tears be unavailing?
Chorus.
Fiercely now the vandal's smiting, Southern homes his torch is blighting— Well he knows he'll conquer never, So would ruin us forever.
Chorus.
A Texan's name, who would not wear it? Well the foe has learned to fear it! Green the laurels for you springing, Bright the halo 'round you clinging.
Chorus.
Chosen by the gallant Morgan !
The North has heard the Texan slogan;
Rangers, ask not, give not quarter !
Be your pathway marked with slaughter I
Chorus.
Volunteer Confederate Button.
