Virginia's Bloody Soil

Come all you loyal unionists, wherever you may be I hope you'll pay attention and listen unto me For well you know the blood and woe, the misery, the toil It took to down secession on Virginia's bloody soil When our good old flag, the Stars and Stripes, from Sumter's walls was hurled And high o'erhead on the forwardest walls the Rebels their flag unfurled It aroused each loyal northern man and caused his blood to boil For to see that flag-Secession's rag-float o'er Virginia's soil Then from the hills and mountain tops there came that wild alarm Rise up! ye gallant sons of North, our country calls to arms Come from the plains o'er hill and dale, ye hardy sons of toil For our flag is trampled in the dust on Virginia's bloody soil And thousands left their native homes, some never to return And many's the wife and family dear were left behind to mourn There was one who went among them who from danger would ne'er recoil Now his bones lie bleaching on the fields of Virginia's bloody soil When on the field of battle, he never was afraid When cannons loud would rattle, he stood there undismayed When bullets rained around him, he stood there with a smile Saying, "We'll conquer, boys, or leave our bones on Virginia's bloody soil."
