"We are a band of
brothers, And native to the soil,
Fighting for the property we gained by honest toil;
And when our rights were threatened
the cry rose near and far:
Hurrah for the bonnie blue flag that bears a single star!"
"Hurrah! Hurrah! for Southern Rights hurrah! Hurrah! for the
bonnie blue flag that bears a single star!"
