Bonnie Blue Flag ~ Lyrics

We are a band of patriots,
Who each leave home and friend
Our noble Constitution
And banner to defend;
Our Capitol was threatened,
And the cry rose near and far
To protect our country's glorious flag
That glitters with many a star.


Hurrah, hurrah, for the Union, boys, hurrah!
Hurrah for our forefathers' good old flag
That glitters with many a star.

Much patience and forbearance
The North has always shown
Toward her Southern brethren,
Who had each way their own;
But when we made our President
A man whom we desired
Their wrath was roused, they mounted guns,
And on Fort Sumter fired.--CHORUS.

They forced the war upon us,
For peaceful men are we;
They steal our money, seize our forts,
And then as cowards flee;
False to their vows and to the flag
That once protected them,
They sought the Union to dissolve,
Earth's noblest, brightest gem.--CHORUS.

We're in the right and will prevail,
The Stars and Stripes must fly,
The "bonnie blue flag" be hauled down,
And every traitor die;
Freedom and peace enjoyed by all
As ne'er was known before,
Our Spangled Banner wave on high,
With stars just thirty-four.--CHORUS.
