"Civil War" as written by and Joseph Lee Henry....
I don't know you to wear a hat
But I came home late and there it sat
You rose to show what hats are for
When living through a civil war
When living through a civil war

Christmas morning and New Year's Day
They flood with dreams and drift away
They cling to logs and cupboard doors
Riding out this civil war
Riding out this civil war

Some fighters came and they pitched a tent
And everyone round here we went
The fix was in but we bet and we swore
From both sides of a civil war

We built this up and we knocked this down
We called our little mob a town
We nailed a sign up above the door
God bless our little civil war
God bless our little civil war

Three dogs at a party on a boat at night
Play checkers in a lantern light
They sing a song out to the shore
Of women, gold, and civil war

Every truth(truce?) carries blame
And every light reveals some shame
Progress rides with thieves and whores
The stowaways of civil war
The stowaways of civil war

Progress rides with thieves and whores
The stowaways of civil war
