Hurrah! Hurrah! For Southern rights, hurrah! Hurrah for the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears a single star. As long as the Union was faithful to her trust Like friends and 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. First gallant South Carolina nobly made the stand Then came Alabama and took her by the hand Next, quickly Mississippi, Georgia, and Florida All raised on high the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears a single star. Ye men of valor gather round the banner of the right Texas and fair Louisiana join us in the fight Davis, our loved President, and Stephens statesmen are Now rally round the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears a single star. And here's to brave Virginia the Old Dominion state With the young Confederacy at length has linked her fate Impelled by her example now other states prepare To hoist on high the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears the single star. Then here's to our Confederacy strong we are and brave Like patriots of old we'll fight our heritage to save And rather than submit to shame to die we would prefer So cheer for the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears the single star. Then cheer boys cheer raise the joyous shout For Arkansas and North Carolina now have both gone out And let another rousing cheer for Tennessee be given The single star on the Bonnie Blue Flag has grown to be eleven. And to Missouri we extend both heart and hand And welcome her a sister of our Confederate band Tho surrounded by oppression no one dare deter Her adding to our Bonnie Blue Flag her bright and twelfth star!
