The Bonnie Blue Flag chords
Harry McCarthy

   E             A             E             B7
We are a band of brothers, and native to the soil,
E                            A         B7     E
fighting for our property we gained by honest toil
                         A               E                 B7
And when our rights were threaten'd, the cry rose near and far,
   E                                  A       B7     E
Hurrah for the Bonnie Blue Flag, that bears a single star!

   E       B7       A                   E
Hurrah! Hurrah! for southern rights, hurrah!
    E           A                     B7             E
Hurrah! for the Bonnie Blue flag that bears a single star!

   E           A         E               B7
As long as the union was faithful to her trust,
     E                     A         B7     E
Like friend and bretheren, kind were we and just
                      A           E                    B7
But now when Northern treachery attempts our rights to mar,
   E                                       A       B7     E
We hoist on high the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears a single star!

   E       B7       A                   E
Hurrah! Hurrah! for southern rights, hurrah!
    E           A                     B7             E
Hurrah! for the Bonnie Blue flag that bears a single star!

       E             A        E              B7
First, gallant South Carolina nobly made the stand;
E                      A        B7     E
Then came Alabama, who took her by the hand;
                    A      E                B7
Next, quickly Mississippi, Georgia and Florida,
    E                                         A       B7     E
All rais'd on high the Bonnie Blue Flag, that bears a single star!

   E       B7       A                   E
Hurrah! Hurrah! for southern rights, hurrah!
    E           A                     B7             E
Hurrah! for the Bonnie Blue flag that bears a single star!

   E             A                 E             B7
Ye men of valor, gather 'round the banner of the right,
E                         A       B7     E
Texas and fair Louisiana, join us in the fight;
                      A         E                   B7
Davis, our loved President, and Stephens, Statesman rare,
    E                                       A       B7     E
Now rally 'round the Bonnie Blue Flag, that bears a single star!

   E       B7       A                   E
Hurrah! Hurrah! for southern rights, hurrah!
    E           A                     B7             E
Hurrah! for 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 link'd her fate;
Impell'd by her example, now other States prepare
To hoist on high the Bonnie Blue Flag, that bears a single star!

   E       B7       A                   E
Hurrah! Hurrah! for southern rights, hurrah!
    E           A                     B7             E
Hurrah! for the Bonnie Blue flag that bears a single star!

And 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 a single star!

   E       B7       A                   E
Hurrah! Hurrah! for southern rights, hurrah!
    E           A                     B7             E
Hurrah! for the Bonnie Blue flag that bears a single star!

Then cheer boys, cheer, and raise the joyous shout;
For Arkansas and North Carolina now have both gone out;
And let another rousing cheer for Tennessee be giv'n,
The single star of the Bonnie Blue Flag has grown to be Eleven

   E       B7       A                   E
Hurrah! Hurrah! for southern rights, hurrah!
    E           A                     B7             E
Hurrah! for the Bonnie Blue flag that bears a single star!
