Land of the South!

Land of the south!

Land of the South! Land of the South!
What e’er my fate in life may be,
Still again, still again,
My thoughts will cling to thee:
Land of love and .sunny skies,
Rich in joy and beauty,
Merry hearts and laughing eyes,
Still make affection duty.
Oh Southern home. Southern home,
Ne’er from thee my heart can stay;
I would fain hear again
Thy soldiers’ manly cry—

Land of the South! land of the South!
What e’er my fate in life may be,
Still again, still again,
My thoughts will cling to thee:
Like that bird of love and song,
Far from its own dwelling,
When into the wild air flung,
What joy its note is tailing.
Ne’er from thee my heart can stay,
I would fain hear again
Thy soldiers’ manly cry—

Land of the South! land of the South!
Though now insulted and oppressed,
Still thy child with Borrow feels
Thy pangs within his breast:
Land of love and .sunny skies,
Rich in female beauty,
Saddened hearts and drooping eyes
Still make affection duly.
Oh Southern home, Southern home,
Ne’er from thee my heart can stay,
j would fain hear again
Thy freemen’s noble cry—
