To horse, to horse! the sabres gleam, High sounds our bugle-call, Combined by honor's sacred tie, Our word is, Rights and Liberty! March forward, one and all! Louisville Conner. WE'LL BE FREE IN MARYLAND. WE'LL BE FREE IN MARYLAND. BY ROBERT E. EOITZ, Air--"Gideon's Band." HTHE boys down South in Dixie's land, The boys down South in Dixie's land, The boys down South in Dixie's land, Will come and rescue Maryland. Chorus--If you will join the Dixie band, Here's my heart and here's my hand, If you will join the Dixie band; We 're fighting for a home. The Northern foes have trod us down, The Northern foes have trod us down, The Northern foes have trod us down, But we will rise with true renown. If you will join the Dixie band, etc. The tyrants they must leave our door, The tyrants they must leave our door, The tyrants they must leave our door, Then we '11 be free in Baltimore. If you will join the Dixie band, etc. WE'LL BE FREE IN MARYLAND. These hirelings they '11 never stand, These hirelings they '11 never stand, These hirelings they '11 never stand, Whenever they see the Southern band. If you will join the Dixie band, etc. Old Abe has got into a trap, Old Abe has got into a trap, Old Abe has got into a trap, And he can't get out with his Scotch cap. If you will join the Dixie band, etc. Nobody's hurt is easy spun, Nobody's hurt is easy spun, Nobody's hurt is easy spun, But the Yankees caught it at Bull Run. If you will join the Dixie band, etc. We rally to Jeff. Davis true, Beauregard and Johnston, too, Magruder, Price, and General Bragg, And give three cheers for the Southern flag. If you will join the Dixie band, etc. We '11 drink this toast to one and all, Keep cocked and primed...
