The Southern Dream
Way down South in Dixie
Freedom never died
While Yankees sold honor for gold
The South upheld its pride
From Alabama to Dominion Old
The Lost Cause was never lost
Though roughly on history’s waves was Dixie tossed
Though her statues cast down and smashed
Though her mighty flag burned and slashed
The memory of those gray clad knights
Was enough to make the Southron dream of rights
And though the dream seemed to fade on many nights
The Yankee’s iron grip slipped
And that mighty dream reborn
A band of free states survived the crash of empire
Through the blood and tears of a mighty band of men
The prophecy was fulfilled
The South Rose Again
