ALWAYS STAND ON THE UNION SIDE
By M.C. Bisbee

Always stand on the Union side,
And battle for the right.
With conscience clear, we’ll laugh at fear
In the midst of the boldest fight.
Why turn against our native land,
The mother whom we love?
Who ever rules with gentle hand,
Till children recreant prove?

CHORUS:
Always stand on the Union side,
And battle for the right.
With conscience clear, we’ll laugh at fear
In the midst of the boldest fight.

Always stand on the Union side,
And “keep your powder dry.”
We’ll soon rejoice both far and wide
To see secession die.
‘Tis better in defense of truth,
To be both brave and bold,
Than side with traitors and at last
Be left out in the cold.

CHORUS

Always stand on the Union side,
‘Tis better, as you see,
Heav’n will crown our gallant arms,
With Union victory!
If you would have your children learn,
To speak with holy pride,
Of this their dear beloved land!
Stand on the Union side!

CHORUS

D-2
UNION DIXIE
Music: Daniel Decatur Emmett
Words: Anonymous
Away down South in the land of traitors,
Rattlesnakes and alligators,
Right away, come away, right away, come away.
Where cotton’s king and men are chattels,
Union boys will win the battles,
Right away, come away, right away, come away.

CHORUS: Then we’ll all go down to Dixie,
Away, away,
Each Dixie boy must understand
That he must mind his Uncle Sam,
Away, away,
And we’ll all go down to Dixie.
Away, away,
And we’ll all go down to Dixie.

I wish I was in Baltimore,
I’d make Secession traitors roar,
Right away, come away, right away, come away.
We’ll put the traitors all to rout.
I’ll bet my boots we’ll whip them out,
Right away, come away, right away, come away.

CHORUS: Then they’ll wish they were in Dixie,
Away, away,
Each Dixie boy must understand
That he must mind his Uncle Sam,
Away, away,
And we’ll all go down to Dixie.
Away, away,
And we’ll all go down to Dixie.

Oh, may our Stars and Stripes still wave
Forever o’er the free and brave,
Right away, come away, right away, come away.
And let our motto ever be –
“For Union and for Liberty!”
Right away, come away, right away, come away.

CHORUS: Then they’ll wish they were in Dixie,
Away, away,
Each Dixie boy must understand
That he must mind his Uncle Sam,
Away, away,
And we’ll all go down to Dixie.
Away, away,
And we’ll all go down to Dixie.
