1.

G / / / |D / / / | When I was young and in my prime, D / / / |G / / / | I left my home in Caroline, G / / / |D / / / | Now all I do is sit and pine, D / / / |G / / For all those folks I left behind.

chorus 1:

/ |G / / / |D / / I've got those Blue Ridge Mountain blues, / |D / / / |G / / And I'll stand right here to say, / |G / / / |C / / My grip is packed to travel and I'm scratching gravel, / |D / / /|G / / / | For that Blue Ridge far a-way.

2.

Well I'm gonnna stay right by my Pa, I'm gonna do right by my Ma, I'll hang around that cabin door, No work or worry anymore.

chorus 2:

I've got those Blue Ridge Mountain blues, Gonna see my old dog "Tray", Gonna hunt the possum where the corn tops blossom, On that Blue Ridge far away.

3.

I see a window with a light, I see two heads of snowy white, It seems I hear them both recite, Where is my wandering boy tonight.

chorus 3:

I've got those Blue Ridge Mountain blues, And I'll stand right here to say, Every day I'm counting 'til I find that mountain, On that blue ridge far away.
