Yep, I AM a “Johnny REB!-NRT

Yep, I AM a REBEL

Was there when Gaius crossed the Rubicon-
Was there When the Christ died as he was spat upon-

Was there when Ragnar hanged two hundred French soldiers as sacrifices to Viking gods of Real Men-
Was there when Richard rushed the arrow clouded walls of Jerusalem-

Was there  at Hastings  when William kicked the dead English king with his spurred boot-
Was there when  Willam Wallace breathed his last in London, unrepentant and mute-

Was there when the  bitter cold  at Valley Forge closed in-
When Yorktown fell, I was there again-

And yes I was a Confederate “Rebel” named John-
I Damn well did not Surender, I died with my boots on!

The Confederate Rebel Ole Dog!
