Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Charleston, SC  Russell Lawson

C G F C C G F C D (C) Bm
[C]In the South Carolina [G]lowlands
there's a [F]place where the cypress [C]grow
and [C]when I'm [C/B]feelin' [Am]sad
it's the [F]place I wanna [G]go
where the [C]Spanish moss is a [G]hangin'
from pal[F]metto to the [G]ground
and the [C]wide old [C/B]Cooper [C/A]River
[C/G]runs [D/F#]down to [G]Charleston [C]town

it's [F]here the sweet, sweet [C]blossoms
of [F]magnolia burst in [C]spring
and the [F]air's so full of [C]spirit
from the g[G]ospel tunes they [C]sing

when the winter wind's do whistle
or the summer breezes blow
if I'm ever tired and lonesome
there's a place I always go
and if all I ever wanted
was to carry me away
I'd vow to my fair city
I'd return gain some day


Instrumental v&r

and the wide old Cooper River
runs down to Charleston town
and the wide old Ashley River
runs down to Charleston
