Part 1. The man. There my memories begin ; Boys, put away that grog ; Something of a martinet ; Dreams are our weakest thoughts ; Toughing it out ; How little do we know that which we are ; I make no terms, I accept no compromise ; The war is probably over ; Boys, fire, and at them with your knives ; The day of the Confederation are numbered ; That assurance that I am right ; I will meet force with force ; I am praying dearly indeed ; Hasten slowly, and be temperate in all things ; A pretty good secessionist ; We have piped but they would not dance -- Part 2. I saw troubles and thorns innumerable ; We will make history for ourselves ; We have taught them a lesson ; Sidney Johnson's step ; The drooping cause of our country ; We could end the war ; The vicious and the selfish ; To strike another blow ; I mourn over opportunities lost ; The clouds are truly dark over us ; Not mine, oh Lord, but Thine ; O love my friends and I forgive my enemies ; Faction has done much ; I cannot feel like a beaten man! ; There is the gridiron we have been fired on ; I seem to remember more every day ; May all your paths be peaceful and pleasant
