Oh Im A Good Old Rebel

Hoyt Axton

 A
Oh, I'm a good old rebel
 EA
Now that's just what I am
 A
And for this Yankee nation
 EE
do no give a damn.
 D
I'm glad I fought again 'er
 A
only wish we'd won
 A
ain't asked any pardon
 EA
For anything I've done.

 A
hates the Yankee nation
 EA
And everything they do
 A
hates the declaration
 EE
Of independence too.
 D
hates the glorious union
 A
'Tis dripping with our blood
 A
hates the striped banner
 EA
And fit (fought) it all I could.

 A
rode with Robert E. Lee
 EA
For three years there about
 A
Got wounded in four places
 EE
And I starved at Point Lookout.
 D
coutch (caught) the roomatism (rheumatism)
 A
campin' in the snow
 A
But I killed a chance of Yankees
 EA
And I'd like to kill some more.

 A
Three hundred thousand Yankees
 EA
Is stiff in southern dust
 A
We got three hundred thousand
 EE
Before they conquered us.
 D
They died of southern fever
 A
And southern steel and shot
 A
wish they was three million
 EA
Instead of what we got.

 A
can't take up my musket
 EA
And fight 'em now no more
 A
But I ain't goin' to love 'em
 EE
Now that is certain sure
 D
And I don't want no pardon
 A
For what I was and am
 A
won't be reconstructed
 EA
And I do not give a damn.

 A
Oh, I'm a good old rebel
 EA
Now that's just what I am
 A
And for this Yankee nation
 EE
do no give a damn.
 D
I'm glad I fought again 'er
 A
only wish we'd won
 A
ain't asked any pardon
 EA
For anything I've done.

 A
ain't asked any pardon
 EA
For anything I've done...
