THE SOUTHRON'S WATCHWORD.
In Imitation of an English Song of the Crimean War. By M. F. Bigney, 1861.                                 Music from S. Glover,
What shall the Southron's watchword he, Fighting- for us on land and sea? Bearing* our flag o'er the billow's foam, Shedding his blood for his Southern home ? To bleed and conquer he's bravely gone ; Freedom and glory still urge him on. Then shall the Southron's watchword be, "The grave of the hero or victory !"
What shall the Southron's watchword be,
Bearing the banner that proves him free?
Bravely he dashes amid the strife,
For home and country, for child and wife ;
His aims are bright and his hopes are high ;
His brave resolve is to do or die;
Then shall the Southron's watchword be,
"The grave of the hero or victory! "
