WAYLON JENNINGS


The Ghost Of General Lee Lyrics

Guitar intro

Through the smoke and the mud and the blood we walked behind Robert E.Lee
Sixty miles from Richmond to face the Union Army
We dug our holes and we built a wall ‘cause we knew they’d be a fight
If the blue coat wearin’ soldiers crossed the river that night

Sure as hell at sundown came a hundred thousand men
And it’s sure did shock me Lord to see, kin killin' kin
The cannonballs were heavy filled with iron and steel and lead
And the James river water ran a bloody red

Lord is it right? Did you mean for me to kill my brother here tonight?

Guitar break

It’s been one hundred years and as I look around
I see a mighty city where there once was a battleground
I thought when Lee surrendered we would fight no more
But the ghost of Lee can still see us fight the civil war

Lord is it right? Did you mean for me to kill my brother here tonight?

Guitar to end
