Something for the weekend. The Yellow Rose of Texas. The song was quite popular with Confederate troops during the Civil War. After the Nashville campaign where General John Bell Hood largely destroyed the Confederate Army of Tennessee, bitter troops under his command added this stanza to the song:
Oh my feet are torn and bloody, and my heart is full of woe,
I’m going back to Georgia, to find my Uncle Joe,
You may talk about your Beauregard, sing of General Lee,
But the gallant Hood of Texas, played hell in Tennessee.
