Maryland, My Maryland

Maryland's state song has some interesting lyrics....

I hear the distant thunder-hum,
The Old Line's bugle, fife, and drum,
She is not dead, nor deaf, nor dumb-
Huzza! she spurns the Northern scum!
She breathes! she burns! she'll come! she'll come!
Maryland! My Maryland!

Excuse me, am I the northern scum you spurn? Funny, you've always gleefully taken my tourism money.
