Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


I Am A Rebel Soldier  Johnny Rebel

[Am]O Polly O Polly,
[Am]It's for your sake [G]al[Am]one,
[Am]I've left my old father
[Am]My country and [G]my [Am]home,
[Am]I've left my old mother
[Am]To weep and [G]to [Am]mourn
[Am]I am a Rebel [D]soldier  [Dm]
[Dm]And far from my [Am]home.


[Am]It's grape shot and musket
[Am]And the cannons lumb[G]er [Am]loud,
[Am]There's many a mangled body
[Am]The blanket for [G]their[Am] shroud,
[Am]There's many a mangled body
[Am]Left on the fields [G]alo[Am]ne,
[Am]I am a Rebel [D]soldier  [Dm]
[Dm]And far from my [Am]home.
I'll eat when I'm hungry
I'll drink when I am dry,
If the Yankees dont kill me
I'll live until I die,
If the Yankees dont kill me
And cause me to mourn,
I am a Rebel soldier
And far from my home.


Here's a good old cup of brandy
And a glass of nice wine,
You can drink to your true love
And I will drink to mine,
And you can drink to your true love
And I'll lament and mourn,
I am a Rebel soldier
And far from my home.


I'll build me a castle on the mountain
On some green mountain high,
Where I can see Polly
As she is passing by,
Where I can see Polly
And help her to mourn,
I am a Rebel soldier
And far from my home.
