And what do you do?

I work wood,


Mostly work wood,

Clear fields?

I can clear a field,

was there something in particular

you wished to say to me?

Not that comes to me,

I'll say thank you... for the cider,

Move back! Go back! Move back!

Go back! Go back!

They're trapped in the wrong

damn crater, whole plan backfired on 'em,

Send them Yanks straight to hell,

- Hold it, hold it,

- let's go, Turn it around,

Damn fools

dug their own grave,

we've got 'em now, boys,

- It's a turkey shoot,

- what?

It's a turkey shoot,

They've run themselves into a hole,

Hell's busted,




- Inman! Inman!

- Oakley!


- Inman!

- Come on,


- I've got you,

I got a few,

- You saw?

- I saw,

Am I gonna die?

Your folks can be real proud of you,

Son, this fellow says

he'll play whatever you want,

what about Bonaparte's Retreat?

That's one I play,

No, Play me somethin' sweet,

like a girl's waiting for me,

- You heard him,

- I only know a couple of tunes,

like when you're at Bishop's Creek...

and you're thirsty...

and the water's so cool,

I don't know what music that is,

I'm reachin' Cold Mountain before you,

Good morning, Sally,

- well, that's a fine-sounding thing,

- Oh...

My piano,

Oh, I've been missing it,

Thank you, by the way,

Inman's in my top field clearing his debt,

Oh, dear,

And then he had nothing to say,

He was happy,


Are men so different in Charleston?


I don't know,

If you're sayin' you might like him,

why not go over and say good mornin'?

I should be gettin' along,

walk on, quickly,

Come on, walk on, Slowly,

walk on,

My dear daughter, Ada,

who's given up so much for so long to help

me in my ministry, and upon whom I rely,

Friends, we are both very happy
