Brothers in Dixie

Among us, there is a code.

We are those who will not waver;

And who will never surrender.

Who will cover the backs of comrades;

And will leave none behind alone;

With a patriotism as only has been known by the Confederacy;

Who will regard the needs of the many over the needs of the self;

Who will be selfless in conduct, exemplary in courage;

Who will be of steadfast character, never compromising principle.

Death is preferred to be faced

Than the boot of oppressive despots.

We are the brothers in Dixie
