Good News From Dixie.

Good News From Dixie.

How the South’s great heart rejoices,
At your cannon’s ringing voices;
Look away, look away, look away, look away.
For faith betrayed and pledges broken,
Wrongs inflicted, insults spoken;
Look away, look away, look away, look away.

In Dixie’s land we’ll take our stand.
And live and die for Dixie’s land.
Awake! awake! awake! awake ye sons of Dixie.
Hear the Northern thunders mutter!
Northern flags in the South wind flutter;
Look away, look away, look away, look away.
Send them back your fierce defiance!
Stamp upon the accurs’d alliance!
Look away, look away, look away, look away.

Fear no danger! Shun no labor!
Lift up rifle, pike and sabre!
Look away, look away, look away, look away.
Shoulder pressing close to shoulder,
Let the odds make each heart bolder!
Look away, look away, look away, look away.

Southrons, hear your Country call you!
Up! lest worse than death befall you!
Look away, look away, look away, look away.
Lo! all the beacon-fires are lighted,
Let all the hearts be now united!
Look away, look away, look away, look away.

Strong as lions, swift as eagles,
Back to their kennels hunt these beagles!
Look away, look away, look away, look away.
Cut the unequal bonds assunder!
Let them then each other plunder!
Look away, look away, look away, look away.

Halt not, till our Federation
Secures among Earth’s Powers its station!
Look away, look away, look away, look away.
Then at peace and crowned with glory,
Hear your children tell the story!
Look away, look away, look away, look away.

If the loved ones weep in sadness,
Victory soon shall bring them gladness;
Look away, look away, look away, look away.
Exultant pride soon banish sorrow;
Smiles chase tears away to-morrow;
Look away, look away, look away, look away.
