Goin' Back To Harlan - Emmylou Harris
  (capo 1)

  (intro) Am  C  F  G  (x2)

  (verse 1)
      Am                 C 
There were no cuckoos, no sycamores.
   F                G           
We played about the forest floor
Dm               C 
  underneath the silver maples,
G                     Am 
  the balsams and the sky.

  (verse 2)
   Am                   C 
We popped the heads off dandelions,
  F                 G 
assuming roles from nursery rhymes.
Dm              C 
  Rested on the riverbank,
G                    Am
  and grew up by and by.
G                    Am  Am
  And grew up by and by

  Frail my heart apart,
and play me a little Shady Grove.
  Ring the bells of rhymney,
til they ring inside my head forever.
C                          G 
  Bounce the bow, rock the gallows
for the hangman's reel.
    G                       C        G
And wake the devil from his dre-eeee-eam

                 C                G
I'm goin back to Harlan, oh oh oh oh
                 C                G
I'm goin back to Harlan, oh oh oh oh
                  Am      Am  
I'm going back to Harlan

  (verse 3)
Am              C 
And if you were Willie Moore
    F             G            
and I was Barbara Allen,
       Dm                    C 
or Fair Ellen all sad at the cabin door
  G                        Am 
a-weeping and a-pinin' for love.
  G                        Am    Am
A-weeping and a-pinin' for love.
