johnny reb  Johnny Horton



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