The Lyrics

Bare with me here....it's been a little while since I've discussed the civil war
Now Lincoln is a telling them
oh South, you better not seceded
Oh cause I will march my troops in
make your agriculture bleed
The South was quite defiant
Election broke the camels back
they seceded from the union
they have no respect for blacks

The union don't like it
growin' the cashcrop
grow the cashcrop
The union don't like it
growin' the cashcrop
grow the cashcrop

Now South attacked Fort Sumter
Took Anderson right down
Bull Run was a close battle
So ha where will South run now?
And General Robert E. Lee
His own house was overrun
The North used it to bury
And now it's a called Arlington
South refused to give up
Oh they said no
So North yelled Let's go!

The union don't like it
growin' the cashcrop
grow the cashcrop
The union don't like it
growin' the cashcrop
grow the cashcrop

now Lincoln thought to himself
We could hurt them really bad
On eve of New Years Day
Signed Slavery is banned
Emancipation Proclamation
Would free all of the blacks
On the plantations
Enforcement is what it lacks

The union don't like it
growin' the cashcrop
grow the cashcrop
The union don't like it
growin' the cashcrop
grow the cashcrop

The South is growing pure cotton
It need the labor of the slaves
Without them the South has got nothing
economy's grave

Oh the North had a great plan
They'd blockade the South
They would cut off their trade
And block Mississippi's mouth

Take over Chattanooga
South is hurt more
North's winning the war

The union don't like it
growin' the cashcrop
grow the cashcrop
The union don't like it
growin' the cashcrop
grow the cashcrop

They're back in the Union
(Grow the cashcrop...)
They are punished through Reconstruction
(Grow the Cashcrop.....)
Now Johnson is President
(Grow the cashcrop...)
