Johnny Reb    
recorded by Johnny Horton
written by Merle Kilgore
 
C
You fought all the way Johnny Reb Johnny Reb

You fought all the way Johnny Reb

F C
Saw you a marchin' with Robert E. Lee
G7
You held your head a-high tryin' to win the victory
F C
You fought for your folks but you didn't die in vain
F C
Even though you lost they speak highly of your name


'Cause you fought all the way Johnny Reb Johnny Reb

You fought all the way Johnny Reb

F C
I heard your teeth chatter from the cold outside
G7
Saw the bullets open up the wounds in your side
F C
I saw the young boys as they begin to fall
F C
You had tears in your eyes 'cause you couldn't help at all


But you fought all the way Johnny Reb Johnny Reb

You fought all the way Johnny Reb

F C
I saw General Lee raise the sabre in his hand
G7
Heard the cannon's roar as you made your last stand
F C
You marched in the battle with the gray and the red
F C
When the cannon's smoke cleared took days to count the dead


'Cause you fought all the way Johnny Reb Johnny Reb

You fought all the way Johnny Reb

F C
When "Honest Abe" heard the news about your fall
G7
The folks thought he'd call a great victory ball
F C
But he asked the band to play the song Dixie
F C
For you Johnny Reb and all that you believed


'Cause you fought all the way Johnny Reb Johnny Reb

Yeah you fought all the way Johnny Reb
