[Verse 1]
A                              D
Takin' a trip in my old Chevy, ridin' through the south
  A                         E
I looked up on a hill and I saw a big white house
  A                                 D
I caught a glimpse of a bearded man polishing his sword
      A                           E              A
Well, I saw Robert E. Lee outside sittin' on the porch

  A                               D
I pulled up in the yard and saw a cotton field out back
   A                              E
He invited me to sit with him and share a fifth of Jack
       A                                   D
He had criss-cross bars and thirteen stars blowing in the wind
          A                                           E               A
He said, "Save your Confederate money, boy 'cause the south will rise again."


[Chorus]
    D                               A
And Robert E. Lee did not like them northerners one bit
         D                           A             E
He was a rebel and he knew it and he didn't give a shit
           D                           A                 F#m
We've been talkin' about Dixie and how old times used to be
              D          A             E         A
And I've been sittin' up drinkin' with Robert E. Lee


[Verse 2]
A                                 D
We talked about his troops in the rebel infantry
          A                             E
And those thirteen southern states that live in infamy
      A                        D
As he took another swig of his black label whiskey
          A                              E             A
He said, "That yankee pride don't mean a damn thing to me."

   A                                D
He spoke about his men and how they always fought so brave
    A                                      E
And how they wove their sacred flag though many lives they gave
   A                              D
He struggled to gain independence for his southern ground
   A                                E                A
He stood up for his cause and never once did he back down


[Chorus]
    D                               A
And Robert E. Lee did not like them northerners one bit
         D                           A             E
He was a rebel and he knew it and he didn't give a shit
           D                           A                 F#m
We've been talkin' about Dixie and how old times used to be
              D          A             E         A
And I've been sittin' up drinkin' with Robert E. Lee


[Verse 3]
       A                        D
It was two o'clock A.M. and the fire was gettin' low
     A                                      E
So I thanked him for our talk 'cause it was time for me to go
      A                              D
While walkin' to my car, I turned to thank him once again
        A                                           E                 A
But the light was bare, there was nothing there but rock and dirt and sand


[Bridge]
F#m                   E               A
Was it my imagination playing with my head?
  F#m              A             E              A
I remember hearing clearly every single word he said
      F#m                                  E             A
Every movement, every gesture, every tear that his heart shed
    D              A          E                 A
His dream is still alive even though his body's dead


[Verse 4]
A                            D                     
Robert E. Lee's memory lives on in the southern soul
A                                  E
Along with his boys who fought and died out in the cold
A                                        D
Lee was a man with tons of courage and a hero without a doubt
         A                                E            A
He was a man with determination, he was a man from the south


[Chorus]
    D                               A
And Robert E. Lee did not like them northerners one bit
         D                           A             E
He was a rebel and he knew it and he didn't give a shit
           D                           A                 F#m
We've been talkin' about Dixie and how old times used to be
              D          A             E         A
And I've been sittin' up drinkin' with Robert E. Lee

           D                           A                 F#m
We've been talkin' about Dixie and how old times used to be
              D          A             E         A
And I've been sittin' up drinkin' with Robert E. Lee
