Sons of the South
In the mystic chords of memory,
Souls who fought for their land
In defense of their liberty.
Men who bravely took a stand;
Men to remember for all eternity.
From the capital of Richmond
To the Lone Star of Texas,
Arising from every field and pond
To give tyrants all that vexes,
Soldiers connected by civilization’s bond.
Led by Robert Lee:
Virginian of honor and pride,
Fighting for Southern victory
Among Southern sons who died
To be free of Northern tyranny.
Marching to freedom’s song,
Sons of an America soon to pass,
Defenders against forces so strong;
Bleeding in their country’s grass,
Fighting for the right against the wrong.
Lee, Stuart, Forrest, and Jackson:
Giants among history’s heroes,
Gentlemen who took action,
Braves towering over phony zeroes,
Men of Liberty’s burning passion.
Never to be in disgrace
These sons of Southern Liberty,
Warriors of their race
And symbols of ancestral bravery
Looked upon by God’s everlasting Grace.
