John D. Hale – I am a rebel soldier


Published on Sep 23, 2012 by José Antonio Presente

I came back from the Civil War just 22 years old I done killed near 50 men now the devil owns my soul.
well ive always been a Christian man and thats not hard to tell but with all the killing that ive done well ill surely go to hell well.
i am a rebel soldier no im not afraid to fight for the lives of the innocent and all my southern pride.
well i am a rebel soldier no im not afraid to die you may hang me in the mornin but ill haunt you in the night.
me and my brothers went to war i was the oldest of
the three i was the only one who came home to a murdered family,
well the yanks they burned my house down with my family
inside and my dad got shot tryin to fight em off and they left me there to die.
well i am a rebel soldier no im not afraid to fight for the lives of the innocent and all my southern pride.
well i am a rebel soldier no im not afraid to die you may hang
me in the mornin but ill haunt you in the night.
me and my friends got together to start a guerilla band to track down them sons a bitch that torched up all our land,
we left early in the mornin on the 14th of July and by the 27th of the very
same month we put em in the by and by,
well i am a rebel soldier no im not afraid to fight for the lives of the innocent and
all my southern pride.
well i am a rebel soldier no im not afraid to die you may hang me in the mornin but ill haunt you in the night.
now i am a wanted outlaw bounty hunters on my trail theres a law man behind every tree wants to put me in the jail
well they cornered me in August of the very same year and by noon on the next i was hangin by rope with a grin from ear to ear.
well i am a rebel soldier no im not afraid to fight for the lives of the innocent and all my southern pride.
well i am a rebel soldier no im not afraid to die you may hang me in the mornin but ill haunt you in the night.
