    Lyrics

    In the grim and final hour of the War between the States
    He'd had enough dyin', all the grief that he could take
    From the Appamattox Courthouse, where the deed was sadly done
    There was no place left for him to go but home

    Ch) He walked all the way home to Southampton County
    To carry all he owned and try to forget
    Wearing sadness like a mantle for the friends he lost in vain
    He walked all the way home to start his life again

    Chorus

    2) In the end he knew the reasons but so many had been lost
    For years to come the fallen would sleep beneath the cross
    What he held in angry silence time could never burn away
    It was just the saddest price he'd ever pay

    Chorus

    3) When he stopped to take some water at a little roadside place
    A pretty southern widow sadly looked into his face
    As they talked a while, his blue eyes seemed to ease her broken heart
    One day he came back and took her home

    Chorus
