Click on the Audio Device above to hear an authentic REBEL YELL given by Pvt. Thomas N. Alexander of the 37th North Carolina Tarheels as recorded by WBT Radio of Charlotte, NC.  The Rebel Yell was recorded at a Sons of Confederate Veterans meeting in 1935 when Alexander was 90 years old.


None of us have ever heard it.
None of us ever will.
There's no one left who can give it.
Tho' you may hear its echo still.

You may hear it up near Manassas,
and down around Gaines Mill.
In December it echoes in Fredricksburg,
in May around Chancellorsville.

It's the "pibroch of Southern fealty".
It's a Comanche brave's battle cry.
It's an English huntsman's call to the hounds.
It's a pig farmer's call to the sty.

It's a high-pitched trilling falsetto.
It's the yip of a dog in flight.
It's the scream of a wounded panther.
It's the shriek of the wind in the night.

It was yelled when the boys flushed a rabbit.
It was passed man to man in the ranks.
It was cheered when they saw their leaders.
It was screamed when they whipped the Yanks.

But none of us will ever hear it.
Tho' some folks mimic it well.
No soul alive can truly describe
the sound of the Rebel Yell.
