Bright Sunny South Capo 2 [Intro] Dm G [Verse 1] G Dm From the bright sunny south to the war, I was sent, Dm E'er the days of my boyhood, I scarcely had spent. Dm From it's cool shady forests and deep flowing streams, G Dm G Ever fond in my mem'ry and sweet in my dreams. [Verse 2] G Dm Oh, my dear little sister, I still see her tears. Dm When I had to leave home in our tender years. Dm And my sweet gentle mother, so dear to my heart, G Dm G It grieved me sincerely when we had to part. [Verse 3] G Dm Said my kind-hearted father as he took my hand: Dm "As you go in defense of our dear native land, Dm "Son, be brave but show mercy whenever you can. G Dm G "Our hearts will be with you, 'til you 'turn again." [Verse 4] G Dm In my bag there's a bible to show me the way, Dm Through my trials here on earth and to Heaven some day. Dm I will shoulder my musket and brandish my sword, G Dm G In defense of this land and the word of the Lord.
