Hold on Abraham! Uncle Sam’s Boys are Coming Right Along.

We’re going down to Dixie, to Dixie, to Dixie,
We’re going down to Dixie, to fight for the dear old Flag;
And should we fall in Dixie, in Dixie, in Dixie,
And should we fall in Dixie, we’ll die for the dear old Flag.

Our Flag shall float o’re Dixie, o’re Dixie, o’re Dixie,
Our Flag shall float o’re Dixie, the Red, the White and Blue;
We’ll ne’er give up ’till Dixie, ’till Dixie, ’till Dixie,
We’ll ne’er give up ’till Dixie, sings Yankee Doodle Doo.

Our Halleck’s bound for Dixie, for Dixie, for Dixie,
Our Halleck’s bound for Dixie, with a million boys or two :
He’ll never give up Dixie, old Dixie, old Dixie,
He’ll never up Dixie, ’till she’s back in the Union true,

General Grant he’s in Dixie, in Dixie, in Dixie,
General Grant he’s in Dixie, and ready for the for:
Do you think he’ll give up Dixie, old Dixie, old Dixie,
Do you think he’ll give up Dixie, oh, no, no, no, no, no, no.

Bold Kearney fell in Dixie, in Dixie, in Dixie,
Bold Kearney fell in Dixie, while fighting for us all:
And there is General Burnside, our Burnside, old Burnside,
And there is General Burnside, he will avenge his fall.

And where is General Butler, our Butler, old Butler,
And where is Picayune Butler, he’s gone to Dixie’s town:
And there he keeps a stirring, a stirring, a stirring,
And there he keeps a stirring, the Secesh up and down.

Brave comrades have come from Dixie, from Dixie, from Dixie,
Brave comrades have come from Dixie, to speed the cause along:
They’re going back to Dixie, to Dixie, to Dixie,
They’re going back to Dixie, with a Brigade full and strong.

Our friends have gone to Dixie, to Dixie, to Dixie,
Our friends have gone Dixie, to fight for the dear old Flag :
And we’re all going to Dixie, to Dixie, to Dixie,
And we’re all going to Dixie, to stand by the dear old Flag.
