"War, Wisdom and Rhyme" as written by and John Dyer Jr. Baizley Allen Sean Blickle....
Only an angel can feed
On ashes and ovaries
Blame the pagans and saints

They are one

War, wisdom and rhyme
The peach and the rattlesnake

We are grave
We are graves
We will die

Maybe the saw grass did feel
Burnt confederate steel
Spoil't milk on the grave

We were wrong

War, wisdom and rhyme
The catfish and bayonet

We are grave
We are graves
We will die

Grave fire
War, wisdom and rhyme

    General CommentThis song has a lot to do with the american civil war.

    "Only an angel can feed on ashes and ovaries" Refers to the burning of homes and crops. "The peach and the rattlesnake" Georgia, along with the 'Don't tread on me' rattlesnake.

    "Maybe the sawgrass did feel - burnt confederate steel" More fire. Probably the burning of the confederate navy in Florida, among other things.

    Perhaps someone who's a civil war buff can make some more connections, or correct me.

    General CommentApart from "feel" and "steel," this song has no Rhyme!
