By Mary L. Wilson, of San Antonio, Texas.
Air—" Dixie."
Hear the summons, sons of Texas! Now the fierce invaders vex us,
Come on, come on, come on for Texas! Daring-, dauntless, reckless Ranger! First in glory, first in danger—
Come on, come on for Texas.
Chorus.—Exalt the fame of Texas, strike home, strike home! "Where Baylor leads the foeman bleeds ! Then strike with him for Texas— Come on, come on, ye gallant sons of Texas!
Awhile ago the}7" dared defy us— Now they meet us but to fly us ; Bright the stars and bars are gleaming! Bright our future star is beaming !
By base Butler's proclamation, By our sister's defamation,— By the sword of justice sheathless, Be the fires of vengeance quenchless.
