Bonnie Blue Flag

Lyrics

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

Chorus
Hurrah! Hurrah for southern rights, Hurrah
Hurrah for the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears a single star

As long as the Union was faithful to her trust
Like friends and like brethren, kind we were, and just
But now, when Northern treachery attempts our rights to mar
We hoist on high the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears a single star

Then here’s to our confederacy, strong we are and brave
Like patriots of old we’ll fight, our heritage to save
And rather than submit to shame, to die we would prefer
So cheer for the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears a single star
