I'm a good old Rebel, now that's just what I am; and for this Yankee Nation, I do not give a damn. I'm glad I fought again' her, I only wish we'd won. I ain't asked any pardon for anything I've done. I hates the Yankee Nation and everything they do. I hates the Declaration of Independence, too. I hates the 'Glorious Union', 'tis drippin' with our blood, I hates the striped banner, I fitted all I could. I rode with Robert E. Lee for three years, thereabout. Got wounded in four places and I starved at Point Look Out. I caughts the rheumatism a'campin' in the snow, but I killed a chance of Yankees, and I'd like to kill some more! Three hundred thousand Yankees are stiff in Southern dust, we got three hundred thousand before they conquered us. They died of Southern Fever, of Southern steel and shot; I wish they were three million instead of what we got. I can't pick up my musket and fight 'em now no more, but I ain't gonna love 'em, now that is certain sure. And I don't want no pardon for what I was, and am; I won't be reconstructed, and I do not give a damn. I'm a good old Rebel, now that's just what I am; for this Yankee Nation, I do not give a damn. I'm glad I fought again' her, I only wish we'd won. I ain't asked any pardon for anything I've done.
