ANTIETAM’S HILL lyrics:

They sent a man to do the devil’s work
But the job is never done
I’ve got a mark for ever soul I’ve stolen with my gun
From the beginning man has had his hand on the trigger of a gun
It’s either be a slave or it’s in my grave and I’m not the only one

And the cannons roar what an awful sound
Another flag goes up another man falls down
I’m southern raise I believe all men are free
So I’ll fight this fight till death comes for me
I’ve fought so long in Lincoln’s war for the peace God keep’s from me
I’ve wished so long to get back home to see my family
17 more miles to go till we reach that battlefield
Where men will die and loose there lives upon Antietam’s Hill

And the cannons roar what an awful sound
Another flag goes up another man falls down
I’m southern raised, I believe all men are free
So I’ll fight this fight till death comes for me

And the cannons roar what an awful sound
Another flag goes up another man falls down
I’m southern raised, I believe all men are free
So I’ll fight this fight till death comes for me

So I’ll fight this fight till death comes for me
