    Music - "Root Hog or Die"

    I come from old Manassas with a pocketful of fun,
    I killed forty Yankees with a single barreled gun;
    It don't make a niff-a-stiff'rence to neither you nor I,
    Big Yankee, little Yankee, all run or die!

    I saw all the Yankees at Bull Run,
    They fought like the devil when the battle first begun.
    But it don't make a niff-a-stiff'rence to neither you nor I,
    They took to their heels, boys and you ought to see 'em fly!

    I saw Old Fuss-and-Feathers Scott, twenty miles away,
    His horses stuck up their ears and you oughta hear 'em neigh;
    But it don't make a niff-a-stiff'rence to neither you nor I,
    Old Scott fled like the devil, boys,root, hog, or die!

    I then saw a "Tiger" from the Old Cresecent City,
    He cut down the Yankees without any pity;
    Oh! It don't make a diff-a-bitt'rence to neither you nor I,
    We whipped the Yankee boys and made the boobies cry.

    I saw South Carolina, the first in The Cause,
    Shake the dirty Yankees till she broke all their jaws;
    Oh! It don't make a niff-a-stiff'rence to neither you nor I,
    South Carolina give 'em hell, boys, root, hog, or die!

    I saw old Virginia, standing firm and true,
    She fought mighty hard to whip the dirty crew;
    Oh! It don't make a niff-a-stiff'rence to neither you nor I,
    Old Virginia's blood and thunder, boys,root, hog, or die!

    I saw old Georgia, the next in the van,
    She cut down the Yankees almost to a man;
    Oh! It don't make a niff-a-stiff'rence to neither you nor I,
    Georgia's some in a fight, boys, root, hog, or die!

    I saw Alabama in the middle of the storm,
    She stood like a giant in the contest so warm;
    Oh! It don't make a niff-a-stiff'rence to neither you nor I,
    Alabama fought the Yankees, boys, till the last one did fly!

    I saw Texas go in with a smile,
    But I tell you what it is, she made the Yankees bile.
    Oh! It don't make a niff-a-stiff'rence to neither you nor I,
    Texas is the devil, boys, root, hog, or die!

    I saw North Carolina in the deepest of the battle.
    She knocked down the Yankees and made their bones rattle;
    Oh! It don't make a niff-a-stiff'rence to neither you nor I,
    North Carolina's got the grit, boys, root, hog, or die!

    Old Florida came in with a terrible shout,
    She frightened all the Yankees till their eyes stuck out;
    Oh! It don't make a niff-a-stiff'rence to neither you nor I,
    Florida's death on Yankees, boys, root, hog, or die!
