George Strait-Entertainer of a Lifetime
i would hope not, not for the song alone. there are probably other versions just with no confederate stuff & slogans....but the song was recorded by horton i guess in the late 50s & it was acceptable lyric wise then
and i agree with it. despite what one thinks of the causes of the war & who should have won, nobody ever ever disputed the southerners fought with legendary fierceness & dedication
the level of courage by men on both sides is remarkable.
What's wrong with Johnny Reb? In general, he didn't own any slaves, and was just a poor farmer who cared only that the North was invading his folk's land.
Just joking, brother. Drink a beer.
continuing on the rebel theme, the man in black sings the theme song from the old tv show...johnny yuma was a rebel...
lyrics~ (Away, away, away rolled the Rebel, Johnny Yuma.) Johnny Yuma was a rebel. He roamed through the west. That Johnny Yuma, the rebel, He wandered alone...
I have always loved the tune, "Dixie."
Since you're pretty knowledgeable on history,abc flag, is the below paragraph found online real, or does it fall in line with Teo's honey? I've always heard that Abe loved the tune.
Although known as a Southern anthem, Dixie's Land was written for the minstrel stage by Daniel Decatur Emmett in New York City. The song was so popular in the South that it became generally accepted as the rallying song of the Confederacy.
Abraham Lincoln loved the song since he first heard it at a show by the Rumsey and Newcomb Minstrels in Chicago in 1860. According to a fellow attorney who attended the show with him, after Dixie's Land was played, Lincoln clapped and shouted "Let's have it again! Let's have it again!"
With the end to the Civil War, which had lasted four years, seemingly in sight, President Lincoln gave his Second Inaugural Address on March 4, 1865. He proclaimed, "With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in; to bind up the nation's wounds." With that idea in mind, on April 8, 1865, the day before Confederate commander Robert E. Lee surrendered to Union General-in-Chief Ulysses S. Grant, Lincoln requested that a military band on board the River Queen play Dixie's Land , the song to which nearly all of the Southern attacks had been conducted. According to a French writer who accompanied him, Lincoln said, "That tune is now Federal property and it is good to show the rebels that, with us in power, they will be free to hear it again."
Dixie's Land is a great American folk song. On this page youll find the lyrics, history, meaning, music, MP3 download, video, and CD.
