lyrics

Lincoln fears defeat
So does James Longstreet
And Bobby Lee he thinks he can't be beat
Getting ready going Getty
They were going Getty
Getting ready going Getty
They were going Getty
Getting ready going Getty
They were going Getty
Getting ready yeah

Jeb Stuart can't be found
John Reynolds coming down
Rebels have taken over the town

Getting ready going Getty
They were going Getty
Getting ready going Getty
They were going Getty
Getting ready going Getty
They were going Getty
Getting ready yeah

With the top down
Cruising along I-95 now
Bumping Howard Stern on the turnpike somehow
Real freedom there's nothing greater
Never got to hear that Custom playlist for later

Rebels came to win but Colonel Josh Chamberlain
Fixed Bayonets and then saved the Union

Getting ready going Getty
They were going Getty
Getting ready going Getty

After Meade whipped Lee
And unfortunately
He didn't chase the retreating enemy
Getting ready going Getty
They were going Getty
Getting ready going Getty
They were going Getty
Getting ready going Getty
They were going Getty
Getting ready yeah

Slowing taking the time just knowing
Freedom from within is the wind that's blowing
Wawa when you see that you gotta
Where else can u get gasoline and ricotta
Or Cracker Barrel and checkers
Blasting Ernie Ford Civil War type records
Arrive with nothing but smiles
Get into this lane Gettysburg three miles

Lincoln was pissed off
He said Meade
You could've finished them off two more years of this as he began to cough

Getting ready going Getty
They were going Getty
Getting ready going Getty
They were going Getty
Getting ready going Getty
They were going Getty
Getting ready yeah

So Lincoln came around
Fired Meade then got down
To US Grant who took them all to town

Getting ready going Getty
They were going Getty
Getting ready going Getty
They were going Getty
Getting ready going Getty
They were going Getty
Getting ready yeah

Checking Gettysburg Eddies
Staring at the dead with a plate of spaghettis
After drinks at the bar you head next door
For the sickest merch from this and that war
Oh the Farnsworth Inn you'll be staying
Not all of their guests are like you and paying
The ghosts that live in the cellar
One is not that loud but the other's a yeller
