[D]Even the [Bm]old folks [D]never kn[Bm]ew [D] why they [Bm]call it [Gadd9]like they [A7ss4]do
[D]I was [Bm]wond'ring since the [D]age of [Bm]two down[Em] on [D/F#]Copperline
[D]Copper [Bm]head [D]copper beec[Bm]h [D]copper [D/F#]kettles sitting [G]side by [A7ss4]each
[D]Copper [Bm]coil, cup o' [D]Georgia [Bm]peach, dow[Em]n on [D/F#]Copperlin[G]e[A]
Bm* D/F# G
Half a mile down to Morgan Creek,
[Em] Leaning [D/F#]heavy on the [G]end of the [A]week
Bm* D/F# G
Hercules and a hog-nosed snake **This is a little step-down
[Em]Down on the [D/F#]Copperline[G], we were do[/E/F#]wn on C[/G]opper[/A]line[D].[Bm]
Warm summer night on the Copperline, slip away past suppertime
Wood smoke and moonshine, down on Copperline
One time I saw my daddy dance, watched him moving like a man in a trance
He brought it back from the war in France, down unto the Copperline
Branch water and tomato wine
Creosote and turpentine
Sour Mash and New Moonshine
Down on Copperline
Down on Copperline
First kiss I ever took, like a page from a romance book
The sky opened and the earth shook, down on Copperline
Down on Copperline
*** Instrumental break
Took a fall from a windy height
I only knew how to hold on tight
And pray for love enough to last all night
Down on Copperline
[D6/G]Day breaks and the boy wakes up
[D6/G]And the dog barks and the bird sings
[D6/G]And the sap rises and the angels sigh....[A7ss4]Yeah
I tried to go back as if I could, all-spec house and plywood
Tore up and tore up good, down on Copperline
It doesn't come as a surprise to me, it doesn't touch my memory
Man I'm lifting up and rising free, down on Copperline
Half a mile down to Morgan Creek,
Leaning heavy on the end of the week
Hercules and a hog-nosed snake
Down on the Copperline,
Take me down on Copperline.
[G].... Yeah .... Take me [/E]down [/F#]on C[/G]opper[/A]line[D] [Bm] [D] [Bm]
.[D]. [Bm]Oh d[G]own on [A7ss4]Copperline[D] [Bm] [D] [Bm]
D Bm G A7ss4 D Bm.....
.. Take me down on Copperline.....
This song was transcribed from Acoustic Guitar Magazine, July/Aug 1992
If this is a problem, please tell me, as I plan to post other songs from
this magazine. I have seen numerous violations of copyright infringement
from mags ranging from pictures, to guitar tab. In any case, just copying the
lyrics from J.T. should be an infringement, but I don't see anyone giving
a whole heck of alot of care. Just..if I get the rap, I'm taking this whole
place with me! But I don't think it will happen too soon.
