The war between the states it's called

to make us all one people

 one man's bullet is another man's death

in this God makes us equal


The men who died in the fight today

all knew this was the start

of some new age yet undefined

of which we're all a part


This Union Flag I stand beneath

is what's protecting me

from a life of moral death

 a life in slavery


When muskets fire if I should fall

in freedom cover me

with these stars from this flag

like leaves from God's great tree
