ok you all seem to know alot about civil war tunes . My grandpa was from AR. and used to sing about getting shot, and drinking whiskey to deaden the pain but the only part i remember is part of  the chorus "saw my leg off Saw my leg off short" so was my grandfather just being nutty( which wouldnt suprise me ) or is this a real song?

I like the Ken Burns Civil War Series Soundtrack "Jine the Cavalry "  and "good ol rebel", which always reminds me of the line out of the "long riders"  , " you got real pretty hands you wanna keep em" LOL

Javal ... Barton and Para are awsome have you seen them live ? My fav of thiers is " Shelby's Grey Mule .. Since I now reenact Shelby's 5th MO.
