(G)

Transpose


1.

- |G / B / |C / G / It's been ten - long years since I left my home, |G / / / |D / / / In the hol - low where I was born, |G / B / |C / G / Where the cool - fall nights make the wood - smoke rise, |G / D / |G / / / | And the fox-hunter blows - his horn.

2.

I fell in love with a girl from the town, I thought that she would be true, I ran away to Charlottesville, And worked in a sawmill or two.

chorus:

D / / / |G / / / | What have they done to the old home place, A / / / |D / / / Why - did they tear it down, |G / B / |C / |G / And why did I leave - the plow in the field, |G / D / |G / / / | And look for a job in the town.

3.

My girl ran off with somebody else, The taverns took all my pay, And here I stand where the old home stood, Before they took it away.

4.

Now the geese they fly south and the cold wind blows, As I stand here and hang my head, I've lost my love, I've lost my home, And now I wish that I was dead.

chorus:
