THE GHOST OF GENERAL LEE

(Waylon JENNINGS)

Guitar intro

Through the smoke and the mud and the blood we walked behind Robert E. LEE
Sixty miles from Richmond to face the Union Army
We dug our holes and we built a wall ‘cause we knew they’d be a fight
If the blue coats wearin’ soldiers crossed the river that night

Sure as hell that sundown came a hundred thousand men
And it’s sure did shock me Lord, Kin killing Kin
The cannonballs were heavy filled with iron and steel and lead
And the James river water ran a bloody red

Lord is it right did you mean to kill my brother here tonight

Guitar break

It’s been one hundred forty years and as I look around
I see a mighty city where there once was a battle ground
I thought when LEE surrounded we would fight no more
But the ghost of LEE can still see us fight the civil war

Lord is it right did you mean to kill my brother here tonight

Guitar to end
