About me:
1. 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 an 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. 2. As long as the Union was faithful to her trust Like friends and like brethren, kind were we, 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. Chorus 3. 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 a single star. Chorus 4. Ye men of valor gather round the banner of the right Texas and fair Louisiana join us in the fight Davis, our loved President, and Stephens statesmen rare Now rally round the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears a single star. Chorus 5. Now here's to brave Virginia, the Old Dominion State, With the young Confederacy at last has sealed her fate, And spurred by her example, now other states prepare To hoist high the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears a single star. Chorus[4] 6. 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. Chorus 7. 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. Chorus[5]
