Here is the Del Mccoury song sometimes played by yonder
submitted by arejay156

G             F
Eli Renfro killed his wife
C                   G
With a long sharp bowie knife
C                  D                G
Hacked her up and put her in the ground
G                       F
Death by hanging was to be his fate
C              G
And old Eli filled with hate
C                          D
Put a curse on the entire town
[ Tab from: ]
           G               F
Can't you hear, can't you hear
C                             G
When the moon is bright and clear
From time to time
          G              F
It's old Eli dragging chains
C                      D
And moaning peoples names
       G                       F      C        G
And I hope and I pray that he never thinks of mine

I was walking the high road late last night
The stars were out and the moon was bright
The wind was blowing you could hear for half a mile
Then an awful sound came through the trees
It chilled my blood and it shook my knees
The kinda thing that makes a man run wild

[ Chorus ]

Well if you get home before I do
Don't look back cause I'm coming through
I'm packing my things and I'm headed far away
They say you can't run away from a curse
Maybe this time I'll be the first
Ain't nobody here gonna make me stay

 Chorus - 
(repeat: and I hope and I pray he never thinks of mine)
