Description

Excerpt: ...columns deep, Where the raging tempests blow, And the iron hail in floods descends, And the bloody torrents flow. Ye Cavaliers of Dixie! Though dark the tempest lower, What arms will wear the tyrants chains, What dastard heart will cower? Pg 163 Bright o'er the night a sign shall rise To lead to victory! And your swords reap their hordes, Where the battle tempests blow; Where the iron hail in floods descends, And the bloody torrents flow. The South! she needs no ramparts, No lofty towers to shield; Your bosoms are her bulwarks strong, Breastworks that never yield! The thunders of your battle blades Shall sweep the servile foe; While their gore stains the shore, Where the battle tempests blow; Where the iron hail in floods descends And the bloody torrents flow. The battle-flag of Dixie! With crimson field shall flame, Her azure cross and silver stars Shall light her sons to fame! When peace with olive-branch returns, That flag's white folds shall glow Still bright on every height, Pg 164 When storm has ceased to blow, And the battle tempests roar no more; Nor the bloody torrents flow. Oh! battle-flag of Dixie! Long, long, triumphant wave! Where'er the storms of battle roar, Or victory crowns the brave! The Cavaliers of Dixie! In woman's song shall glow The fame of your name, When the storm has ceased to blow, When the battle tempests rage no more Nor the bloody torrents flow.10 LAND OF KING COTTON. BY JO.
