Fred Darian – Battle Of Gettysburg lyrics

On July 3rd in '63
I was a Corporal with the infantry
And I left my home in Tennessee
For I must follow General Lee

This was the Battle of Gettysburg
Where a sea of soldiers did converge
Bayonets, I heard them say
And now, the charge was on it's way

I shouted loud, a rebel yell
And the sky was filled with cannon shell
And a horse cried out, my God, it's hell
This was the Battle of Gettysburg

A boy up front fell to his knees
And I heard him cry, come to me, please
I held him gently and laid him down
And he looked at me from that battleground

Then from the camp, I saw a curl
My very soul, this was a girl
She held her side and said to me
If I must die, then let it be

My love lies dead, I know not where
But now I pray, I join him there
Then she smiled and touched my face
Closed her eyes and left this place

My eyes were filled with bitter tears
As sounds of dying filled my ears
I said, oh, Lord, and raised my hand
I'll never hate another man
This was the Battle of Gettysburg

I yelled to Lee, at General Lee
To stop the cannons and concede
But no one heard, the words were gone
A sargeant said, get up, push on
This was the Battle of Gettysburg

I shouted loud, a rebel yell
And the sky was filled with cannon shell
And a horse cried out, my God, it's hell
This was the Battle of Gettysburg
Yes, this was the Battle of Gettysburg
This was the Battle of Gettysburg
Yes, this was the Battle of Gettysburg
