The Southern War Song.

The Southern War Song.

We shall win! we shall win! for our cause it is just,
Our arms ever ready, and in God is our trust;
Up, up, with our flag it shall wave o’er the sea,
We shall win! we shall win! and our sons shall be free.

Down, down with the despots, their strongholds assail,
Their cause let it perish, they shall not prevail;
On, on, with our might, let it crush their wild glee,
We shall win! we shall win! and our sons shall be free.

March, march, with the cry ’tis for liberty dear,
We fight for our homesteads, and nothing we fear;
Come on then ye tyrants, it is passed the decree,
We shall win! we shall win! and our sons shall be free.

Hark! Hark! what is that stealing over the shore,
’Tis the wail of the dying, their groans on us roar;
Hist! hist! they are beaten, and away from us flee,
We shall win! we shall win! and our sons shall be free.

Now, now, let the trumpet its tones blazen forth,
We have triumphed and conquered the imbecile North;
Shout! shout! the glad tidings with cheers three times three,
We have won! we have won! and our sons shall be free.

Sing, sing, for the pride of the tyrant is broken,
Our rights we maintain, and the people have spoken;
Up, up, with our flag it shall wave o’er the sea,
We have won! we have won! and our sons shall be free.
