I don't take credit for this tab, It was transcribed by Hoyt Axton.
I just like being able to go to one website to view my tabs.

This is an old American Civil War folk song, if written by a confederate soldier.


    C
Oh, I'm a good ol' rebel
    G                 C
Now that's just what I am

    C
And for this Yankee nation
  G         G
I do not give a damn.
    F
I'm glad I fought again'er
  C
I only wish we'd won
  C
I ain't asked any pardon
    G             C
For anything I've done.

  C
I hates the Yankee nation
    G              C
And everything they do
  C
I hates the declaration
   G           G
Of independence too.
  F
I hates the glorious union
     C
'Tis dripping with our blood
  C
I hates the striped banner
    G                     C
And fought it all I could.

  C
I rode with Robert E. Lee
    G                 C
For three years there about
    C
Got wounded in four places
      G               G
And I starved at Point Lookout.
  F
I caughtch'd the rheumatism
  C
A campin' in the snow
    C
But I killed a chance of Yankees
    G                     C
And I'd like to kill some more.

      C
Three hundred thousand Yankees
   G                C
Is stiff in southern dust
   C
We got three hundred thousand
  G                   G
Before they conquered us.
     F
They died of southern fever
    C
And southern steel and shot
  C
I wish they was three million
  G                C
Instead of what we got.

  C
I can't take up my musket
    G                C
And fight 'em now no more
    C
But I ain't gonna love 'em
    G               G
Now that is certain sure
    F
And I don't want no pardon
    C
For what I was and am
  C
I won't be reconstructed
      G             C
And I do not give a damn.

    C
Oh, I'm a good ol' rebel
    G                 C
Now that's just what I am
    C
And for this Yankee nation
  G         G
I do not give a damn.
    F
I'm glad I fought again'er
  C
I only wish we'd won
  C
I ain't asked any pardon
    G             C
For anything I've done.

  C
I ain't asked any pardon
    G             C
For anything I've done...
