THE NIGHT THEY DROVE OLD DIXIE DOWN - Robbie Robertson

CAPO 1st FRET


Am C/G F AmVirgil Cain is the name and I served on the Danville train
C/G Am F AmTill Stoneman's cavalry came and tore up the tracks a-gain
F C Am FIn the winter of sixty-five, we were hungry, just barely alive
Am FBy May the tenth, Richmond had fell
C Am DIt was a time I re-member all so well
CHORUS
C/G F C/GThe night they drove old Dixie down
AmAnd all the bells were ringing
C/G F C/GThe night they drove old Dixie down
AmAnd all the people were singing. They went...
C/G Am D FNa na na na na na, na na na na na na na na na
Am C/G F AmBack with my wife in Tennessee when one day she called to me
C/G Am F Am"Virgil, quick come see! There goes Robert E. Lee"
F C Am FNow, I don't mind choppin' wood and I don't care if the money's no good
Am FYou take what you need and you leave the rest
C Am DBut they should never have taken the very best
(REPEAT CHORUS)
Am C/G F AmLike my father be-fore me, I will work the land
C/G Am F AmAnd like my brother above me, who took a rebel stand
F CHe was just eighteen, proud and brave
Am FBut a Yankee laid him in his grave
Am FI swear by the mud be-low my feet
C Am DYou can't raise a Cain back up when he's in de-feat
(REPEAT CHORUS)
