Even though you lost they speak highly of your name

I saw the bullets open up the wounds in your side

You had tears in your eyes but you couldn’t help at all

Anita: I saw General Lee raise a saber in his hand
Heard the cannons roar and you made your last stand

When the smoke cleared away it took days to count the dead

Johnny: When President Lincoln heard the news about your fall
Everybody thought there’d be a victory ball
But he asked the band if they would play Dixie
For you, Johnny Reb, and for all you believed

You fought all the way, Johnny Reb

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