Civil War – Andersonville Lyrics

Civil War – Andersonville Lyrics

June of 1864
Captured by the rebel foe
Huddled on a greyback train to Georgia

The devils knew what hell we’d see
As they muzzled forth our company
Into this cage of pine
Full of miseries and terror

I dream of reaching home again
Your face within my hands

Beyond these walls lies eternity
I’m coming back again
God knows how or when
But I’ll find my way
We’ll live a simple life
The day I bid farewell
To Andersonville

The months have wrought us skin and bone
There’ll be no exchange, we shiver cold
As the rain pours down on the poisoned ground from Heaven

Here where hope’s a memory
Freedom fades to reverie
Cursed to envy those who’ve closed their eyes forever

I’ll never see you face again
I hope you’ll understand

Past the deadline – lies eternity
My broken soul awaits an end to the pain
As I pass the line, may the bullet find it’s mark
I bid farewell to thee
And Andersonville

I’ll never see your face again
I hope you’ll understand

Past the deadline lies eternity
No coming back again, an end to the pain
As I pass the line, may the bullet find it’s mark
I bid farewell to you
And Andersonville
