The Southern Soldier Lyrics And Guitar Chords. An American Confederate Civil War Song. Recorded by the 2nd South Carolina String Band,

Intro: play one instrumental verse (repeat after each verse)
I'll (D)place my knapsack on my back
My (G)rifle on my shoulder
I'll (D)march away to the firing line
And kill that yankee (A)soldier
I'll (Bm)kill that yankee (G)sol(D)dier
I'll (D)march away to the firing line
And kill that yankee (A)sol(D)dier

I'll (D)bid farewell to my wife and child
Fare(G)well to my aged mother
I will (D)go and join in the bloody strife
Till this cruel war is (A)over
Till (Bm)this cruel war is (G)o(D)ver
I'll (D)go and join in the bloody strife
Till this cruel war is (A)o(D)ver

If (D)I am shot on the battlefield
And (G)I should not recover
Oh (D)who will protect my wife and child
And care for my aged (A)mother
Who'll (Bm)care for my aged (G)mo(D)ther
Oh (D)who will protect my wife and child
And care for my aged (A)mo(D)ther

And (D)if our southern cause is lost
And (G)southern rights denied us
We'll be (D)ground beneath the tyrant's heel
For our demands of (A)justice
For (Bm)our demands of (G)jus(D)tice
We'll be (D)ground beneath the tyrants heel
For our demands of (A)jus(D)tice

Be(D)fore the south shall bow her head
Be(G)fore the tyrants harm us
I'll (D)give my all to the southern cause
And die in the southern (A)army
I'll (Bm)die in the southern (G)ar(D)my
I'll (D)give my all to the southern cause
and I'll die in the southern (A)ar(D)my

If (D)I must die for my home and land
My (G)spirit will not falter
(D)Here's my heart and here's my hand
Upon my countrys (A)alter
U(Bm)pon my country's (G)al(D)ter
(D)Here's my heart and here's my hand
Upon my country's (A)al(D)ter

And (D)Heaven be with us in the strife
Be (G)with the Southern Soldier
We'll (D)drive that mercenary horde
Beyond our southern (A)border
Be(Bm)yond our southern (G)bor(D)der!
We'll (D)drive that mercenary horde
Beyond our southern (A)bor(D)der
