Virgil Caine is the name and I served on the Danville train
  F#m        A                        D                  Bm
Till Stoneman s cavalry came and tore up the tracks again.
F#m               D                  A              Bm
In the winter of sixty-five we were hungry, just barely alive
F#m              D                         A         Bm           B
By May the tenth Richmond had fell itís a time I remember oh so well.

  A              Dmaj7         A
The night they drove old Dixie down
    Dmaj7
And the bells were ringing
  A              Dmaj7           A
The night they drove old Dixie down
        Dmaj7   
And the people were singing
     A     F#m    Esus4      D     A
They went la la la la la la la la la la la la la.

Back with my wife in Tennessee when one day she called to me
Virgil, quick come see there goes Robert E. Lee!
Now I don t mind chopping wood and I don t care if the money s no good.
Just take what you need and leave the rest but they should never have taken the very best.

Like my father before me I will work the land
And like my brother above me who took a rebel stand
He was just eighteen proud and brave but a Yankee laid him in his grave
I swear by the mud below my feet you can t raise a Caine back up when he s in defeat.
