The Bonnie Blue Flag

The Bonnie Blue Flag H. Macarthy

We are a band of brothers, and native to the soil,
Fighting for our Liberty, with treasure, blood and toil; And when
Our rights were threaten'd, the cry rose near and far,
Hurrah for the Bonnie Blue Flag, that bears a Single Star!

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.
