Johnny Horton



 EAE
 You fought all the way, Johnny Reb, Johnny Reb  
 EAE
 You fought all the way, Johnny Red  
 EAE
 Saw you a-marchin' with Robert E. Lee  
 E
 You held your head a-high, tryin' to win the victory
 AE
You fought for your folks but you didn't die in vain 
 A
Even though you lost, they speak highly of your name 
Chorus
 EAE
 'Cause you fought all the way, Johnny Reb, Johnny Reb  
 EAE
 You fought all the way, Johnny Reb  
 EAE
 I heard your teeth chatter from the cold outside  
 E
 Saw the bullets open up the wounds in your side
 AE
I saw the young boys as they begin to fall
 EAE
 You had tears in your eyes, 'cause you couldn't help at all  
Chorus:
 EAE
 But you fought all the way, Johnny Reb, Johnny Reb  
 EAE
 You fought all the way, Johnny Reb  
 EAE
 I saw, General Lee, raise the saber in his hand 
 B7
 Heard the cannon's roar as you made your last stand
 AE
You marched in the battle with the gray and the red 
 EA
 When the cannon's smoke cleared, took days to count the dead 
Chorus:
 EAE
 'Cause you fought all the way, Johnny Reb, Johnny Reb  
 EAE
 You fought all the way, Johnny Reb  
 EAE
 When, "Honest Abe", heard the news about your fall  
 E
 The folks thought he'd call a great victory ball
 AE
But he asked the band to play the song, Dixie 
 EAE
 For you Johnny Reb and all that you believed 
Chorus:
 EAE
 'Cause you fought all the way, Johnny Reb, Johnny Reb   
 EAE
 Yeah, you fought all the way, Johnny Reb  
Repeat once and then fade out.
