Abe's proclamation in a twinkle,
Stirred up the blood of Rip Van Winkle;
Fight awaj7, etc. Jeff Davis's answer was short and curt: "Fort Sumpter's taken, and nobody's hurt!"
Fight away, etc.
We hear the words of this same ditty, To the right and left of the Mississippi;
Fight away, etc. In the land of flowers, hot and sandy, From Delaware Bay to Rio Grande!
Fight away, etc.
The ladies cheer with heart and hand, The men who fight for Dixie land;
Fight away, etc. The "Stars and Bars" are waving o'er us, And Independence is before us; Fight away, etc.
Chorus. Martinsburg, Va.
Cavalry Button.
