     G 
In a dreary Yankee prison

Where a Rebel soldier lay 
D 
By his side there stood a preacher 
                           G 
?Ere his soul should pass away 

As he faintly whispered, ?Parson,? 
                          D 
As he clutched him by the hand 
D 
?Oh Parson, tell me quickly, 
                              G 
Will my soul pass through the Southland??

Through old Virginia grand

Will I see the hills of Georgia 
                            G 
And the green fields of Ala-bam?? 

G 
?Will I see that little church house 
                             D 
Where I pledged my heart and hand

Oh Parson, tell me quickly,

Will my soul pass through the Southland??

?Was for lovin?, dear old Dixie

In this dreary cell I lie

Was for lovin?, dear old Dixie 
                         G 
In this northern state I die.? 
G 
?Will you see my little daughter? 
                       D 
Will you make her understand?

Will my soul pass through the Southland??

verse 4 
      G 
With his soul pure as a lily 
                   D 
And his body sanctified 
        D 
In that dreary yankee prison 
                     G 
The brave rebel soldier died 
        G 
Then the parson looked up to heaven 
                        D 
And in blessing raised his hand 
       D 
Father grant this soldier?s wishes 
                              G 
May his soul pass through the Southland
