Civil War Reenactor

Only 10 more days until the Official GAS 20th Anniversary Show at High Noon Saloon, Friday Sept 8. We have played this song Eleventy Million times and it never gets old:

It all started with a D and D game
A Time Life book about the blue and the grey
A pewter chess set from the Franklin Mint
A rusted sword from my cousin’s basement

You be the Captain I’ll be the Colonel
Civil War Re-Enactor
You be the Sergeant I’ll be the surgeon
Civil War Re-Enactor

The next thing I knew I bought a blue cap at a specialty store downtown
My wife stitched me a uniform that I could wear around
I bought an old carbine and I picked up a sword I polished my bayonet
My buddies from Michigan are driving down Gettysburg I’ll get there yet

You bring the Merrimac, I’ll bring the monitor
Civil War Re-enactor
You drink the whiskey, I’ll cut your leg off
Civil War Re-enactor
You bring the salt pork, I’ll bring the hard tack
Civil War Re-enactor
All of the violence but none of the death
Civil War Re-enactor

Sleeping like spoons to keep cozy at night
I polished my teeth to sharpen my bite
I got hit with a musket wad
So I’m never going back to my copy shop job

You bring the Merrimac, I’ll bring the monitor
Civil War Re-enactor
You drink the whiskey, I’ll cut your leg off
Civil War Re-enactor
You bring the salt pork, I’ll bring the hard tack
Civil War Re-enactor
All of the violence but none of the death
Civil War Re-enactor
