153. loyal Delaware.In all the range of Border States,
To whom we've ne'er been crusty,
The staunch, unflinching Delaware's
The only one that's trusty.
While wicked Treason rages wild
All up and down her borders,
She still defends the Stars and Stripes,
And waits for further orders.
Not all Virginia's treachery,
Nor Maryland's distraction,
Can make her quit her Uncle Sam,
For any Traitor faction.
And Delaware has had her share
But then there's something in her soil
That don't agree with Traitors!
The Union will remember her,
When force of arms it uses,
And give to her of Maryland
As much as e'er she chooses!
 And when to future Peace we pledge
A bumper, rare and loyal,
We'll say of gallant Delaware,
“She's little, but she's loyal!”
