Making my way across Dixie, eighteen sixty-five; I walked all the and halfway to heaven, now believe I'm on the other side; Day turns into nightime, nightime's by my side; I look to he sky, I see shining light, the stars will be my guide;
The smell of gun smoke in the air; Lighting fills the sky; I heard a rebel yell just as loud as hell; You can hear it 'round the world tonight; The silent reign of heroes; Is what brings me here today; What I came to fight for, seems so far away So far away; Far away;
Tell me what's the cost of freedom; Fighting for my life and family name;
The devil's laughing long and hard deep in hell tonight; My feet are bleeding right through my shoes; Ground's as cold as ice; Sing no killer angels; Can you hear my cry? It seems like a sin when nobody wins and so many had to die;
Who is right, and tell me who is wrong; Old boys come down from here to Virginia; To sing the battle song; The silent reign of heroes is what gives me strength today; Tell me what's the cost of freedom; It's so far away, far away;
Fighting for our heritage yeah; It's so far away, far away; When I see my home and family; Then I know I finally paid a debt.
