The story of Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson. Wounded May of 1863 by friendly fire he died 10 days later from pneumonia. Arguably the greatest General of the Civil War and certainly of The South.
he was revered by Blacks, slave and free
ladies fought for the buttons on his sleeves
all the lines of blue
he could easily deceive

when his boys blood began to spill
called to his men up on Henry House Hill
"let us determine to die here
and conquer we will

he was a rock, he was my friend
it was there at Chancellorsville he met his end
he was so brave, i never thought he'd fall
old Blue Kight never crumbled
he was just a Stone Wall

Into the valley marched so many guns
he came outnumbered at least 4 to 1
Richmond was saved
by the fightin' he'd done

then the news came Old Jack did depart
Lee cried "i've lost my right arm and my heart"
and the "end state" wont work
aint noone as smart

he was a rock, he was my friend
it was there at Chancellorsville he met his end
he was so brave, i never thought he'd fall
old Blue Kight never crumbled
he was just a Stone Wall

then on May 10, 1863
it was on Sunday his spirit did break free
he drew his last breath and whispered in the breeze
"let's cross the river and rest under the shady trees"

he was a rock, he was my friend
it was there at Chancellorsville he met his end
he was so brave, i never thought he'd fall
old Blue Kight never crumbled
Tom Fool never stumbled
he was just a Stone Wall

WHERE THE MIGHTY RIVERS MEET
Lonnie Glass you are an amazing storyteller! Your presentation of all the songs on your profile bites right to my musical bone. I remember that the Civil War was probably my favorite area of study back in High School and Stonewall Jackson was my favorite General. Thank you for bringing your music to my attention. Sincerely, Jimmy
