These Lyrics?

Album: Songs Of The Civil War
Sang by the group: Songs Of The Civil War & Hoydt Axton

Oh, I'm a good old rebel
Now thats just what I am
And for this yankee nation
I do no give a damn.

I'm glad I fit (fought) against 'er (her)
I only wish we'd won
I ain't asked any pardon
For anything I've done.

I hates the Yankee nation
And eveything they do
I hates the declaration
Of independence too.

I hates the glorious union
'Tis dripping with our blood
I hates the striped banner
And fit (fought) it all I could.

I rode with Robert E. Lee
For three years there about
Got wounded in four places
And I starved at Pint (Point) Lookout.

I coutch (caught) the roomatism (rheumatism)
Campin' in the snow
But I killed a chance of Yankees
And I'd like to kill some mo'. (more.)

Three hundred thousand Yankees
Is stiff in southern dust
We got three hundred thousand
Before they conquered us.

They died of southern fever
And southern steel and shot
I wish they was three million
Instead of what we got.

I can't take up my musket
And fight 'em down no mo' (more)
But I ain't a-goin' to love 'em (them)
Now that is serten sho. (certain sure.)

And I don't want no pardon
For what I was and am
I won't be reconstructed
And I do not give a damn.

Oh, I'm a good old rebel
Now that's just what I am
And for this Yankee nation
I do no give a damn.

I'm glad I fought against 'er (her)
I only wish we'd won
I ain't asked any pardon
For anything I've done.

I ain't asked any pardon
For anything I've done...

While it's true that they lost, what were they fighting for? Was it slavery? Was it states rights? Or was it because THEY (yankees) were down there? Truth be known, the vast majority of southern troops were never slave owners, so cross that off your list. As far as being a sore loser, as George Smith Patton once said, "I wouldn't give a hoot in hell for a man who lost and laughed about it."................................Kingpin

I always thought the Yankees were down there because the rebs blew the shit out of federal Ft. Sumter ?  and took the federal cannons with the fort.

Actually, the only thing the rebels killed during the
bombardment was a mule. There were a few federals injured
when one of their guns blew up returning
fire........................Kingpin

the yankees were down south because Lincoln wanted to and swore to "preserve the union" at all costs, even war.....slavery was never the primary goal of the CW...just a secondary consequence....at least for Lincoln.....

Slavery became an issue after Antietam. Lincoln needed a
union victory and used it as an excuse to do something
drastic. The emancipation went into force on Jan 1, 1863,
although it didn't really mean anything until the south was
beaten. So dismayed were the union troops over the
emancipation, that many deserted, saying, "I ain't fighting
to free slaves." It came to a head in July during the New
York draft riots, where the Irish beat, burned and caused
nothing but mayhem, and order was restored by troops from
Pennsylvania who were sent there directly after fighting in
the Battle of Gettysburg............Kingpin
