REBEL TOASTS; OR, DRINK IT DOWN!
Oh, here 's to South Carolina ! drink it down,
Here 's to South Carolina, drink it down,
Here 's to South Carolina, the first to open up the fray.
Chorus.—Drink it down, drink it down, Drink it down, down, down.
Oh, here 's to Mississippi! drink it down,
Here 's to Mississippi, drink it down,
Here 's to Mississippi, for she gave old Abe the slip.
Oh, here 's to Alabama ! drink it down, Here 's to Alabama—we'll fight for her banner.
Oh, here 's to Florida State, drink it down,
Here 's to Florida—to Southern rights she'll ne'er say nay.
Oh, here 's to Georgia State—drink it down,
Here 's to Georgia State—altho' she is rather late.
Oh, here's to Louisiana! drink it down,
Here 's to Louisiana—how glorious is her banner.
Oh, here 's to gallant Texas ! drink it down,
Here's to gallant Texas—the Yankees say "she vexes us."
