The Southland's bleeding
the Union's pierced the heart of Dixie
still our Generals are leading
with the courage to set us free
maybe it's time to count up all the cost
we're just hoping there'll be some changes
wishful thinking, we're headed downhill
the only way now is surrender
but we're fighting still


You know there ain't no real chance
for us to win this
there won't be no victory dance
at the finish
it's just - Southern pride
it's just - stubborn blindness

No young man's adventure
holding on to a fading lifestyle
maybe at first
now it's terror running wild
there's no one willing to lend a helping hand
they say we're foolish and we can't blame them
let's stop this fighting while we can
it takes a brave man, but to end this killing
it takes a braver man

You know there ain't no real chance
for us to win this
there won't be no victory dance
at the finish
it's just - Southern pride
it's just - stubborn blindness
it's just - Southern pride
it's just - stubborn blindness
it's just - Southern pride
it's just - stubborn blindness
it's just - Southern pride
it's just - stubborn blindness
it's just - Southern pride
it's just - stubborn blindness
it's just- Southern pride
