See, our glorious Flag's unfurld,
The Stars and Stripes unite in beauty,

We are for the Union still;

So let the Southerns, c.

So let the Southerns, c.

Pennsylvanians to your station,
Boldly meet the Traitor foe;
Fight as bravely for the nation,
As you did in Mexico.
So let the Southerns, c.

And echo'd be from strand to strand;
Then fight for Liberty and Glory,
The Union and your Native Land.
So let the Southerns, c.
