The Bonnie Blue Flag chords
Harry McCarthy

E A E B7We are a band of brothers, and native to the soil,
E A B7 Efighting for our property we gained by honest toil
A E B7And when our rights were threaten'd, the cry rose near and far,
E A B7 EHurrah for the Bonnie Blue Flag, that bears a single star!
E B7 A EHurrah! Hurrah! for southern rights, hurrah!
E A B7 EHurrah! for the Bonnie Blue flag that bears a single star!
E A E B7As long as the union was faithful to her trust,
E A B7 ELike friend and bretheren, kind were we and just
A E B7But now when Northern treachery attempts our rights to mar,
E A B7 EWe hoist on high the Bonnie Blue Flag that bears a single star!
E B7 A EHurrah! Hurrah! for southern rights, hurrah!
E A B7 EHurrah! for the Bonnie Blue flag that bears a single star!
E A E B7First, gallant South Carolina nobly made the stand;
E A B7 EThen came Alabama, who took her by the hand;
A E B7Next, quickly Mississippi, Georgia and Florida,
E A B7 EAll rais'd on high the Bonnie Blue Flag, that bears a single star!
E B7 A EHurrah! Hurrah! for southern rights, hurrah!
E A B7 EHurrah! for the Bonnie Blue flag that bears a single star!
E A E B7Ye men of valor, gather 'round the banner of the right,
E A B7 ETexas and fair Louisiana, join us in the fight;
A E B7Davis, our loved President, and Stephens, Statesman rare,
E A B7 ENow rally 'round the Bonnie Blue Flag, that bears a single star!
E B7 A EHurrah! Hurrah! for southern rights, hurrah!
E A B7 EHurrah! 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 EHurrah! Hurrah! for southern rights, hurrah!
E A B7 EHurrah! 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 EHurrah! Hurrah! for southern rights, hurrah!
E A B7 EHurrah! 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 EHurrah! Hurrah! for southern rights, hurrah!
E A B7 EHurrah! for the Bonnie Blue flag that bears a single star!
