I live for the south

I live for the south

Is this what you live for?

I live for the south

I live for the confederacy

My friend lives for the confederacy

Do you live for the south


Falls round me like money for acting

Presidents blood wet on my face

Warm as my love for the south

Hot like the steam of my gun

Thinking the south to be saved

I got no praise from the south

But the harsh words hurt like a bullet

I felt a pain worse than

My broken leg

I live for south

Live for it

Die for it

I could taste my disappointment

Blood on my fingers

Disappointment fell through my body

I could just hear the south talkin bad about me

Give my heart

Give my heart to the south
