"The Sons of Confederate Veterans"

"O Southern Army
When will we see your like again?
That fought and died for
Your homes, your farms, your glens.
And stood against them,
Lincoln's army,
And taught them how we defend
The things that we believe in.

The battlefields are bare now
The grass is dead and still,
Like that cause that is lost now
Which those so dearly held,
And stood against them
The invading army
Stood and fought them
And kept their honor.

Those days are past now
And past they must remain,
But we can still stand now
And be that people again
That stood against them,
The tyrant's army
Let us stand and act upon it,
And show that we are men.

O, Southern Army,
Have we found your like again,
Those who rise and fight for right,
Who will stand and be men,
Who will stand against them,
The liars and deceivers,
And teach them how we defend
The things of honor that we believe in."
