Band – The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down chords
F#m A D BmVirgil Caine is the name and I served on the Danville trainF#m A D BmTill Stoneman s cavalry came and tore up the tracks again.F#m D A BmIn the winter of sixty-five we were hungry, just barely aliveF#m D A Bm BBy May the tenth Richmond had fell its a time I remember oh so well.A Dmaj7 AThe night they drove old Dixie downDmaj7And the bells were ringingA Dmaj7 AThe night they drove old Dixie downDmaj7 And the people were singingA F#m Esus4 D AThey 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.
