The Lyrics

The Battle of Shiloh was so fiercely fought
To the union resistance, confederates brought
Fifty-five thousand troops, General Johnston would lead
In the gray light of dawn, April 6th, many bleed..

The first day of slaughter, the General was slayed
Struck down when a bullet randomly strayed
Union reinforcements, the next day'd arrive
And beef up Grant's army, as onward they'd drive

The Battle Of Shiloh was smoky and loud
The Battle of Shiloh carved men brave and proud
The rifles and cannons explode day and night
At the small place of Shiloh the north and south fight

Confederates rally a hopeless defense
By mid day on the seventh, the fighting's intense
Retreating confederates, union control
Twenty-three thousand men killed and wounded, the toll

The Battle of Shiloh raged bloody and long
Today it is hist'ry with no right or wrong
The place known as Shiloh, on maps, just a dot,
But The Battle of Shiloh will not be forgot..

The Battle of Shiloh must not be forgot..

Are you having a premonition? Brad and Angelina haven't even separated, so how do you know they are in a child custody battle over Shiloh?

I thought this might have to do with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, but it didn't, thank god. Great Civil War parody, AFW, and 5s for you.
