lyrics

The Curse Of Cain
In the key of D

Another moon on the stinking Potomac
I’ll be ready when the dogs break their chains
They’ve chased me like a thief through the dark roads of Virginia
But if I had to I would do it all again

Jefferson Davis is just a shadow
No heart left in Robert E. Lee
Useless, useless, they’re all worse than cowards
Every Confederate heart has cut me free

Abandoned with the curse of Cain upon me
I am abandoned with the curse of Cain upon me

Abraham Lincoln had it coming
He had the blood of the Union to bear
He may rise like a ghost in every dream north of Richmond
But behind him I will always be there

Abandoned with the curse of Cain upon me
I am abandoned with the curse of Cain upon me
Abandoned with the curse of Cain upon me
I am abandoned with the curse of Cain upon me
