A bittersweet 'ghostly' love song about a rebel re-incarnated biker. Delightful fantasy that will leave you feeling like you were right there with the two lovers. Awesome harmonica contributed by Scott 'Sweepy' Walker.

Story behind the song
This is my own fantasy. Made up from bits and pieces of my real life and written with the picture of a dear friend in my mind. I only can dream of such a passion as these two characters have for each other.
Lyrics
He rode in on a Harley....Walked up to the bar Sign said no colors are allowed When he took of his grey jacket I saw the tatoo on his arm Southern Born and Southern Proud I asked him where he got it. Was it long ago? He said April 1862. The battle of Shiloh No No He hasn't lost his mind He's a Rebel -- from another time A Rebel left behind The bartender said, honey his lies are so absurd He was born right here in Gettysburg But I listened to the way he talked and I believed him, every word It wasn't any Yankee that I heard The jukebox played Hank Williams So Lonesome I Could Cry I watched him as he sang along, then whispered “so am I” No No...he hasn't lost his mind He's a Rebel -- from another time A Rebel left behind Now he sleeps without a pillow - a musket by our bed And sometimes I smell black powder mixed with melting lead I hear him talking in his sleep,“don't leave me - I ain't dead” And I don’t care what anybody says No No...he hasn't lost his mind He's a Rebel -- from another time A Rebel left behind Oh No...he hasn't lost his mind He's a Rebel -- from another time A Rebel left behind General Lee, You left this one behind
