Camp Song of the Maryland Line

We're the boys so gay and happy,
Where so 'er we chance to be.
If at home, or on camp duty,
'Tis the same, we're always free.

So let the Yanks say what they will;
We'll be gay and happy still.
Gay and happy, Gay and happy
We'll be gay and happy still.

Old Virginia needs assistance,
Northern hosts invade her soil.
We'll provide a firm resistance,
Courting steel and fire and toil.

So let the Yanks say what they will;
We'll be gay and happy still.
Gay and happy, Gay and happy
We'll be gay and happy still.

We left our homes and those we cherish,
In our own dear Maryland.
We would rather fight and perish,
Side by side, and hand in hand.

So let the Yanks say what they will;
We'll be gay and happy still.
Gay and happy, Gay and happy
We'll be gay and happy still.
