    Lyrics

    You fought all the way Johnny Reb Johnny Reb
    You fought all the way Johnny Reb

    Saw you a marchin' with Robert E Lee
    You held your head high tryin' to win the victory
    You fought for your folks but you didn't die in vain
    Even though you lost they speak highly of your name
    Cause you fought all the way Johnny Reb Johnny Reb
    You fought all the way Johnny Reb

    I heard your teeth chatter from the cold outside
    Saw the bullets open up the wounds in your side
    I saw the young boys as they began to fall
    You had tears in your eyes cause you couldn't help at all
    But you fought all the way Johnny Reb Johnny Reb
    You fought all the way Johnny Reb

    I saw General Lee raise a sabre in his hand
    Heard the cannons roar as you made your last stand
    You marched into battle with the Grey and the Red
    When the cannon smoke cleared it took days to count the dead
    Cause you fought all the way Johnny Reb Johnny Reb
    You fought all the way Johnny Reb

    When Honest Abe heard the news about your fall
    The folks thought he'd call a great victory ball
    But he asked the band to play the song Dixie
    For you Johnny Reb and all that you believed
    Cause you fought all the way Johnny Reb Johnny Reb
    You fought all the way Johnny Reb
    (Yeah) You fought all the way Johnny Reb Johnny Reb
    You fought all the way Johnny Reb
    You foughtall the way Johnny Reb Johnny Reb
    (Yeah) You fought all the way Johnny Reb
