Would anyone have a tab to "I'm a Good Old Rebel"? Here's a version I really like:

youtube.com/watch?v=HkveQrTBFtU

I'm a beginner and have the main melody (somewhat) pegged, but I'm having trouble "clawhammerfying" it haha.

It's my favorite Civil War era tune.

Thank you

ultimateguitar.com has all the versions with words and chords. They also have another song "I am a Rebel Soldier" by John D. Hale Band, which I like even better.  https://youtu.be/qn08eHrl0h0

Apparently not the old-timers or the reenactors...

This isn't a song from the time of the Civil War, but it was written during the time the Lost Cause Narrative was constructed. Many groups like the United Daughters of the Confederacy, Southern politicians, and other stakeholders wanted to remove the idea that the sole fight of the War was over slavery. Neary all of the Civil War monuments were errected throughout the South at the same time this song was written, along with films like D.W. Griffith's very influential film "Birth of a Nation". The narrative is about Southern sovereignty and the dignity of the plantation economy. History as a discipline, meaning working historians, today only recognize the fight in that war to be over slavery. These songs and minstrelsy are historically important, for certain, in context.
