Gettysburg's 3 days in July, 1863 yielded 50,000 casualties and proved to be the signal to the South of it's impending defeat. One battlefield was The Wheat Field where 4,000 lay dead and the hogs from the neighbouring farmer broke from their pens and began to devour the dead bodies.
gold field ripened
blood flowin' red
bullets and bayonets
buzzin' round their heads
brother 'gainst brother
together they died
in the Devil's Den & The RoundTop
you could hear the angels cry

hogs in the wheatfield, no one has survived
hogs in the wheatfield, no one is recognized

4,000 brothers, 4,000 sons
2000 wailing widows
4,000 silent guns
canisters are bursting
from the cannons Napoleon snouts
hidden so deeply in the woods all about

hogs in the wheatfield, no one has survived
hogs in the wheatfield, no one is recognized

scores are settled, decrees are signed
crosses and statues are all in a line
though 50,000 footsteps
fell silent on that day, look out,
the hogs in the wheatfield
won't ever go away

hogs in the wheatfield, no one has survived
hogs in the wheatfield, no one is recognized
