“You Got It All Wrong

You say that I’m unethical – you label me a fool
I’m simply bein’ respectful – of my g’great Grandaddy’s views
He was for love and freedom – Southern thru and thru
He fought against oppression -hate and over-rule
My great grandaddy’s daddy -went marching off to war
What he stood for gallantly – is now what I’m standing for
You’re asking me to give up -things dear to my heart
If you can’t hear me clear enough – I’ll take it from the start
You Got it all wrong!
I’m a Southern man from the sweet southland
Lordy, I’m just like you
You got it all wrong!
If you’d take my hand, you could understand
Together we’d know the truth
You got it all wrong! You got it all wrong!
Oh, I’m glad I am in Dixie – where hearts are strong and true
But that dear anthem has been banned – by people just like you
Now you want to take our flag – that very proudly waves
Over our grandfathers who are turning in their graves.
Now you don’t realize – just what you’re trying to do
If I could open up your eyes – the truth might shine on thru
This is the flag – the home – the land – of my dear family
And with every ounce of strength I’ll stand to save their memory”
