Columbus Stockade Blues
Written by Jimmie Davis & Eva Sargent


Chords

Song

1.

Way down in Columbus, Georgia,
Want to be back in Tennessee,
Way down in Columbus stockade,
My friends have turned their backs on me.

chorus:

Go and leave me if you wish to,
Never let me cross your mind,
If in your heart you love another,
Leave me darling I don’t mind.

2.

Many a night with you I’ve rambled,
Many an hour I’ve spent with you,
Thought I’d gained your heart forever,
Though you have proved untrue.

chorus:

3.

Last night while I lay sleeping,
I dreamed I held you in my arms,
When I awoke I was mistaken,
I was peeping through the bars,

chorus:

coda:

Leave me darling I don’t mind.
