Colonel Lou - Johnny Rebel

       D
Johnny Reb was from the Southland
          A               D
Where the cotton grows so tall
    G             D
And at the age of seventeen
   A                   D
He heard his country's call.
   
He kissed his poor old mother,
   A                 D
He told his dad good bye.
   G                  D
He checked his trusty rifle
       A               D
And he kept his powder dry.

       D
Johnny Reb, Johnny Reb,
    G               D
why did you have to go?
    
Johnny Reb, Johnny Reb,
A              D
Aw we miss you so!

     D
They sent him off to Georgia
   A                D
To join the boys in grey.
   G               D
He fought his only battle
     A              D
On a cold and rainy day.

He cocked his gun and wet his sights,
A               D
Then he looked around
    G               D 
And every Yank that showed himself,
   A                   D
He quickly brought him down.

       D
Johnny Reb, Johnny Reb,
    G               D
why did you have to go?
    
Johnny Reb, Johnny Reb,
A              D
Aw we miss you so!

         D      
When the fighting stopped they found him,
       A       D
He was barely alive.
        G                 D
But the Union troops that he brought down,
     A             D
They counted forty-five.

They found him lying in a ditch
        A                     D
when he breathed his last goodbye,
    G                 D                  A                  D
"My heart for our old Southland boys and keep our flag hold high!"

       D
Johnny Reb, Johnny Reb,
    G               D
why did you have to go?
    
Johnny Reb, Johnny Reb,
A              D
Aw we miss you so!

       D
Johnny Reb, Johnny Reb,
    G               D
why did you have to go?
    
Johnny Reb, Johnny Reb,
A              D
Aw we miss you so!
