Round the flag of the South, oh! in thousands now rally, For the hour 's departed when freemen may sally; Your all is at stake; then go forth and God speed you, And onward to glory and victory lead you!
Chorus.—Hurrah ! hurrah ! the old North State forever! Hurrah ! hurrah ! the good old North State.
DIXIE.
By Albert Pike
Southrons, hear your country call you! Up! lest worse than death befall you !
To arms ! to arms ! to arms ! in Dixie ! Lo ! all the beacon-fires are lighted, Let all hearts be now united !
To arms ! to arms ! to arms ! in Dixie ! Advance the flag of Dixie ! Hurrah! hurrah !
CHORUS.—For Dixie's land we'll take our stand, To live or die for Dixie !
To arms ! to arms ! And conquer peace for Dixie !
To arms ! to arms ! And conquer peace for Dixie!
Hear the Northern thunders mutter ! Northern flags in South winds flutter! Send them back your fierce defiance, Stamp upon the accurs'd alliance!
