[Intro]
G

[Verse 1]
Cadd9 G Cadd9Well the name she gave was Caroline
GDaughter of a miner
Cadd9And her ways were free
G D/F# Em7And it seemed to me
Dsus2 Cadd9 GThat sunshine walked beside her
[Verse 2]
GShe come from Spencer
Cadd9 GAcross the hill
Cadd9 GShe said her pa had sent her
Cadd9'cause the coal was low
G D/F# Em7And soon the snow
Dsus2 Cadd9 GWould turn the sky to winter
[Verse 3]
GShe said she'd come
Cadd9 G Cadd9To look for work
GShe was not seeking favors
Cadd9And for a dime a day
G D/F# Em7And a place to stay
Dsus2 Cadd9 GShe'd turn those hands to labor
[Verse 4]
GBut the times were hard
Cadd9 G Cadd9And the jobs were few
GAll through Tecumseh Valley
Cadd9So she asked around
G D/F# Em7'till a job she found
Dsus2 Cadd9 GTending bar at Gypsy Sally's
[Verse 5]
G Cadd9 GShe saved enough to get back home
Cadd9 GSpring replaced the winter
Cadd9But her dreams were denied
G D/F# Em7Her pa had died
Dsus2 Cadd9 GWord come down from Spencer
[Verse 6]
G Cadd9 G Cadd9So she took to walkin' out on the road
GWith all the hate inside her
Cadd9And it was many a man
G D/F# Em7Returned again
Dsus2 Cadd9 GTo lay himself beside her
[Verse 7]
G Cadd9 G Cadd9Well they found her down beneath the stairs
GThat led to Gypsy Sally's
Cadd9In her hand when she died
G D/F# Em7Was a note that cried
Dsus2Fare thee well
Cadd9 GTecumseh Valley
[Verse 8]
G Cadd9 G Cadd9Well the name she gave was Caroline
GDaughter of a miner
Cadd9And her ways were free
G D/F# Em7And it seemed to me
Dsus2 Cadd9 GThe sunshine walked beside her
