Now it's gone, gone, gone, those years have passed away
It's gone, gone, gone, there's truth in what I say
It's gone, gone, gone, there's nothing more to say
But I'd do anything if I could do it all again

Well, I'm an old man now and I'm born to win the race
People won't believe me but there's truth in what I say
Many hearts were broken and a lot of tears were shed
The sky was black and the battlefield was red

Now it's gone, gone, gone, those years have passed away
It's gone, gone, gone, there's truth in what I say
It's gone, gone, gone, there's nothing more to say
But I'd do anything if I could do it all again

Now, Stonewall Jackson stepped right up and then he said to me
He said, "The battle's gettin' rough, son, guess we better flee
There's grapeshot all around us and the field is black with lead
You better start a-runnin', boy, before you lose your head"

It's gone, gone, gone, those years have passed away
It's gone, gone, gone, there's truth in what I say
It's gone, gone, gone, there's nothing more to say
But I'd do anything if I could do it all again

Well, the cannons roared around us and the field was black with lead
I picked a soldier dressed in blue and filled him full of lead
I picked out six more soldiers there a-sittin' on a mound
I fixed my bayonet to my gun and really mowed them down

Now, it's gone, gone, gone, those years have passed away
It's gone, gone, gone, there's truth in what I say
It's gone, gone, gone, there's nothing more to say
But I'd do anything if I could do it all again
But I'd do anything if I could do it all again
