THE BONNIE BLUE FLAG

COVER MY COFFIN WITH THE BONNIE BLUE FLAG
LET THE NOTES OF DIXIE BE HEARD
TELL THE PREACHER TO PRAY FOR THE SOUTH WE LOVE
FILL THE CHURCH WITH SONG AND THE WORD

COVER MY COFFIN WITH THE BONNIE BLUE FLAG
WITH TENDERNESS LOOK AT THE STAR
IT STANDS FOR OUR LAND AND THE BIRTHRIGHT WE LOST
IT'S A SYMBOL OF ALL WE ARE

COVER MY COFFIN WITH THE BONNIE BLUE FLAG
RECALL THE GREAT JACKSON AND LEE
THE HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF BRAVE MEN IN GREY
WHO FOUGHT SO THAT WE COULD BE FREE

COVER MY COFFIN WITH THE BONNIE BLUE FLAG
SILENTLY THANK SOUTHERN WOMEN
FOR ALL THAT THEY DID AND FOR ALL THAT THEY LOST
FOR LOVE OF DIXIE, THEIR GIVING

COVER MY COFFIN WITH THE BONNIE BLUE FLAG
ACKNOWLEDGE THAT MY FIGHT IS DONE
BUT NEVER SURRENDER, DON'T PUT DOWN YOUR ARMS
BATTLES REMAIN TO BE WON

COVER MY COFFIN WITH THE BONNIE BLUE FLAG
THANK GOD THAT YOU LIVE IN THE SOUTH
STAY TRUE TO THE CAUSE AND TRUE TO YOUR PAST
UNTIL THE DAY WE MEET IN GOD'S HOUSE
