Website for the 2nd South Carolina String Band
Always like the song since I was a young’un. My younger son learned to play the song on the piano as one of his first pieces. Never got tired of it, even with all the practicing.
Thanks for the link.
nice tune. As to the Confederate flag….you want to fly it? Next time, win. Lose, the opposition gets to fly its flag. And rightly so
During the ’50’s and earlier, the song was played at ALL southern school functions.
That was before the government got into “managing” the schools .
Bless their hearts, one and all.
After 8 years of Obama and 50+ years of PC, this vid made me smile to know that I’m not alone.
Gonna take more than singin’ methinks. 😉
You be sure to haul down whatever Nazi flag is on your wall.
And shut your gob just every little once ‘n awhile.
Spirit comes before action……
“Hurrah! Hurrah! Hurrah for the Bonney Blue Flag…” and
Oh, I’m a good old Rebel,
Now that’s just what I am;
For this “fair land of Freedom”
I do not care a damn.
I’m glad I fit against it-
I only wish we’d won.
And I don’t want no pardon
For anything I’ve done.
I hates the Constitution,
This great Republic too;
I hates the Freedmen’s Buro,
In uniforms of blue.
I hates the nasty eagle,
With all his brag and fuss;
But the lyin’, thievin’ Yankees
I hates’ em wuss and wuss.
We got three hundred thousand
Befo’ they conquered us.
They died of Southern fever
And Southern steel and shot;
And I wish it was three million
Instead of what we got.
I can’t take up my musket
And fight’ em now no mo’,
But I ain’t a-goin’to love’ em,
Now that is sartin sho’;
And I don’t want no pardon
For what I was and am;
And I won’t be reconstructed,
And I do not give a damn
Or DEconstructed either.
Alter but slightly the anachronisms and bring to present tense and there’s a battle cry here somewhere.
Check out “Knock Em Stiff” by Goodnight Texas…
Ooh – can we use papier mache heads? The Left seems to do well with those. Well, those and violence, or threats of violence.
Bless their hearts. And it ain’t just a song. We sung this in Catholic grade school. The outward singing is an inward expression of a complete mind. As a man thinketh, so is he.
A lot of passion floating around that tent.God bless ’em
