Grave of the Unknown Soldier- Rebel Son
(G)I sure do love to visit my great great great grandfather
who served (C)our great southern (G)land
in a field filled with (C)beautiful (G)stones
and many a (Em)brave and honorable (D)man
and out of all the (C)plots I stop to (Am)see
there's one (Em)more
(C)that always brings (G)me down (D)to my (Em)knees
(D)"here (Em)lies an (C)unknown (D)confederate (G)soldier
known (Em)only but to (C)God
(D)may he rest in (G)peace"
(C)What was his name
(G)where did he come from
was he a (C)middle aged man wise of the world
or a (G)boy that died too (D)young
his i(C)dentity is a (D)mystery to every(G)one but (D)Jesus (Em)alone
(C)thank you, sir, for (D)whoever you were
in this (G)grave that's (D)marked "Un(Em)known"
his (D)family knew (C)only that he(D) left to (Em)defend his (G)land
and (D)never returned (G)home
This song is kinda tricky to play, but I love it. It may not be perfect, but I think I got it pretty close. "out of all the plots I stop to see there's one more" line may not be correct but the Am and Em were the closest I could get. Let me know if anyone has any suggestions.
