I turned my back on my true love when fightin' Johnny Reb. I left my love a letter in the hollar of a tree. I told her she would find me, in the US Cavalry. Down they go, there's so such word as can't. We're riding down to hell and back for Ulysses Simpson Grant. Hi-Yo Down they go, there's so such word as can't. I left my love, my love a sleepin' in her bed. Stan Jones was born in in Arizona. He was an American songwriter and actor.

M Anthony YoungOct 26, Micky Glad you could check out the link on songs. I will have to check out the group you mention. Then the smoke of battle hung, Its sulphrous cloud our land above, And bitter feud and hatred filled Brave hearts that should have warmed with Love.

It is an anonymous poem penned by a Union soldier after the battle at Wauhatchie, Tennessee on the night of October 28, Some mules became terrified by the noisy battle and stampeded through the night
