"Johnny Reb" lyrics

Johnny Reb

Okay, Johnny Reb
You can sound down the flag now
It's all over

Yeah, you fought all the way
Johnny Reb, Johnny Reb
You fought all the way
Johnny Reb

I saw you marching
With Robert E Lee
You held your head high
Trying to win the victory
You fought for your folks
But you didn't die in vain
And even though you lost
They speak highly of your name

You fought all the way
Johnny Reb, Johnny Reb
You fought all the way
Johnny Reb

I heard your teeth chattered
From the cold outside
Saw the bullets open up the wounds
In your side
Saw the young boys
When they began to fall
There were tears in your eyes
But you couldn't help at all

You fought all the way
Johnny Reb, Johnny Reb
Yeah, you fought all the way
Johnny Reb

I saw General Lee
Raise a sabre in his hand
Heard the cannons roar
As you made your last stand
You marched into battle
With the Grey and the Red
When the smoke cleared away
It took days to count the dead

Cause you fought all the way
Johnny Reb, Johnny Reb
You fought all the way
Johnny Reb

And when President Lincoln
Heard the news of your fall
Everyone said there'd be a victory ball
But he asked the band
If they would play Dixie
For you Johnny Reb
And for what you believed?

Cause you fought all the way
Johnny Reb, Johnny Reb
You fought all the way
Johnny Reb

Yeah, you fought all the way
Johnny Reb, Johnny Reb
You fought all the way
Johnny Reb
