I was just a little boy in elementary school
G                    C
English and Math and Science class
G            D      G
Learning the golden rule

I learned how to add and how to subtract
       G            D
How to multiply and divide
G                        C
I learned about bugs and I learned about plants

When my history teacher would tell us tales of old times long gone away

I was amazed at the way she knew all the people and their names and the 
                D
places and the dates
        G                          C                   G         D    G  
Because when I first learned about General Lee and his Thirteen rebel states.

One day she came to school with a big brown grocery bag
G                       C                 
She opened it up we all helped her hold her up
      G         D       G
This great big X-shaped flag
          G                 C                         G                   D  
She said "Class, now only a fool would tell you this flag is a symbol of hate
G                          C                   G             D
It represents the men who fought and died with pride for our Confederate

states

G                           C                   G            D  
Your assignment tonight, I want you to write, I want you to pretend
            G                    C
That one of these brave men came back to life,
G               D     G
What would you say to him
          G                     C                            G         
Well the school bell rang and I thought and I thought as the bus carried me 
       D 
across town
      G                    C                 G           D        G
I got out my pencil and my notebook pad and this is what I wrote down

G           D
I'd like to shake your hand
    G                    C 
For giving your life for Dixieland

Mr. Confederate man,

The next day in history class, I put my paper on the teacher's desk
Then she called me up in front of everyone, 
because she said she liked mine the best
As I walked up to the head of the class, 
my teacher smiled and she nodded at me
Then I saw a tear roll down her cheek as I began to read

I read

Mr. Confederate man,
I'd like to shake your hand
For giving your life for Dixieland
Mr. Confederate man,

Played quiet:

I was at home reading through the news, just the other day
When I ran across my old teacher's name and I saw that she had passed away
With a bitter-sweet smile I looked up at my wall, a wrinkled paper and an 
old wood frame
Where underneath penciled words almost faded away, she had marked a great 
big red A
Plus

Mr. Confederate man,
I'd like to shake your hand
For giving your life for Dixieland
Mr. Confederate man,

I wrote

Mr. Confederate man,
I'd like to shake your hand
For giving your life for Dixieland
Mr. Confederate man...
