about

This is a song about pretending to be a real life Union Soldier in the conflict against the southern Confederate States Of America during the American Civil War.

lyrics

I'm a blue soldier
Just somewhat older
Fight for the Union
That's just assuming

That they figured out how to go back in time
Right to a place where you can find uniforms reasonably priced
Then I'd buy a real wool union cap and dress
A gun I'll figure out the rest
Eat beans unseasonably spiced

I'm a blue soldier
I'm a blue soldier

I'm a blue soldier
Just somewhat older
Fight for the Union
That's just assuming

They lowered the height requirement back then
1858 Remington almost blew off my underwear
And sky blue baggy trousers I'm concerned
Let's say I'm shot taken prisoner
While wearing nothing under there

I'm a blue soldier
I'm a blue soldier

I'm a blue soldier
Just somewhat older
Fight for the Union
That's just assuming

I'm a blue soldier
I'm a blue soldier
