Listen to the song

Dixie (Land of Traitors)

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) 

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)

Away down south where grows the cotton
seventy six seems quite forgotten
far away, far away, far away, Dixie land.
And men with Rebel shout and thunder
tear our good old flag asunder
far away, far away, far away, Dixie land. 

(Chorus)

The ladies! Bless the darling creatures!
Quite distort their pretty features,
for the war, for the war, for the war, in Dixie.
And say, " I know you've seen it done sir,"
"they'll have an officer or none sir,"
for the war, for the war, for the war, in Dixie.
