Bridge: Each one had a gun and a sword to wield
But a family’s love is a stronger shield
John returned to the Yanks well fed
Jake slipped back through the town and the Yanks and the fields
Back to the Rebs

4. Well I was there, I’m Sally Heck their sister
I’ll never forget that mornin’ mister
Wait! It gets better yet
Believe it or not
We all survived the Civil War
And the ceasefire breakfast, breakfast

Chorus: It was breakfast at the Heck’s, eggs on the griddle
Rebs and Yankees close enough to spit while
Boonsboro’s hot with mamma and me cookin’ in the middle
Breakfast at the Heck’s!
