Texas secede! Keep this song in your heart my secession patriots, never let them see you run!
Bonnie Blue Flag
We are a band of brothers and native to the soil
Fighting for our liberty with treasure, blood, and toil
And when our rights were threatened the cry rose near and far, Hurrah for the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears the single star!
Hurrah! Hurrah! For Southern rights. Hurrah!
Hurrah for the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears the single star!
As long as the Union was faithful to her trust
Like friends and brethren. Kind where we and just
But now, when Northern treachery attempts out rights to mar
We hoist on high the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears the single star.
First gallant South Carolina nobly made the stand
Then came Alabama and took her by the hand
Next quickly Mississippi, Georgia and Florida all raised on high the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears the single.
Ye men of valor gather round the banner of the right
Texas and fair Louisiana join us in the fight
Davis ourloved president. And Stephens statesmen rare
Now rally round the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears a single star
Now here's to brave Virginia the Old Dominion state
With the young Confederacy at last as sealed her Fate
And spurred by her example, now other states prepare
To hoist on high the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears a single star
Then cheer boys cheer raise a joyous shout
For Arkansas and North Carolina now have both gone out
And let another rousing cheer for Tennessee be given
The single star of the Bonnie Blue Flag has grown to be eleven
Then here's to our Confederacy. Strong and brave
Like patriots of old we'll fight, out 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.
