A Touching Love Letter written during the Civil War dated July 25, 1864
I have heard the cannons thunderin' all night
And I cannot sleep for wondering why the rebel's cause is right
And the morphine seems to do no good at all
And I would run away if I would not fall.

I joined the southern cavalry for fun
I have rode a thousand horses, always had a way with a gun
Now I'm among the horseless riders lyin' still
Swallowed up by the cause on the Widow's Hill

And I dreamed about a Rose in a Spanish garden
And I kissed you and I placed it in your hair
If I'm ever on my feet again I will
I would run all the way just to meet you there

Through the day I watched those southern boys go down
And they, like Georgia peaches, bruised and broken on the ground
Through the night, I wonder is it worth the pain
And I cry not revenge, I call your name

And I dreamed about a Rose in a Spanish garden
And I kissed you and I placed it in your hair
If I'm ever on my feet again I will
And I would run all the way just to meet you there
