Johnny Cash

"Johnny Reb"

[Intro]
You fought all the way Johnny Reb Johnny Reb
You fought all the way Johnny Reb

[Verse 1]
Saw you a 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
Even though you lost they speak highly of your name

[Chorus]
Because you fought all the way Johnny Reb Johnny Reb
You fought all the way Johnny Reb

[Verse 2]
I heard your teeth chatter from the cold outside
Saw the bullets open up the wounds in your side
I saw the young boys as they began to fall
You had tears in your eyes cause you couldn't help at all

[Chorus]

[Verse 3]
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 cannon smoke cleared it took days to count the dead

[Chorus]

[Outro]
When Honest Abe heard the news about your fall
The folks thought he'd call a great victory ball
But he asked the band to play the song Dixie
For you Johnny Reb and all that you believed
Because 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
You foughtall the way Johnny Reb Johnny Reb
(Yeah) You fought all the way Johnny Reb
