Silent Reign Of Heroes Lyrics

    making my way across dixie, eighteen sixty-five;
    I walked all the and halfway to heaven, now believe i'm on the other side;
    Day turns into nightime, nightime's by my side;
    I look to he sky, i see shining light, the stars will be my guide;

    The smell of gunsmoke in the air;
    Lighting fills the sky;
    I heard a rebel yell just as loud as hell;
    You can hear it 'round the world tonight;
    The silent reign of heroes;
    Is what brings me here today;
    What i came to fight for, seems so far away
    So far away;
    Far away;

    Tell me whats the cost of freedom;
    Fighting for my life and family name;

    The devil's laughing long and hard deep in hell tonight;
    My feet are bleeding right through my shoes;
    Ground's as cold as ice;
    Sing no killer angels;
    Can you hear my cry?
    It seems like a sin when nobody wins and so many had to die;

    Who is right, and tell me who is wrong;
    Old boys come down from here to virginia;
    To sing the battle song;
    The silent reign of heroes is what gives me strenght today;
    Tell me whats the cost of freedom;
    It's so far away, far away;

    Fighting for our heritage yeah;
    It's so far away, far away;
    When i see my home and family;
    Then i know i finally paid a debt.
