Ghost Of Virginia (failed - reindex)  Justin Townes Earle

capo 7
[G]Well she comes out at night with the c[C]old winds of [G]December
and when its [C]quiet you hear her engines [G]cry
She blows s[G]moke at her wheels and her g[C]ears pound the s[G]teel
as they [C]carry her [D]on down the l[G]ine
Now I'm sure that you've heard stories as most of us have
in the lunch counter 'n' barber shop queues
She's the Ghost of Virginia and from here up to Richmond
She runs by the light of the moon
Instrumental Break
Well a few years back on the old Suffolk Road
where it crosses the abandoned rail line
My grandpa claimed that he'd seen a freight train
and it wasn't no sleek stream-line
She was cold black and steel and she screamed as she cut
her way clear of the pines
But he swears to this day he can feel the earth shake
and smell her smoke when the winds just right
Instrumental Break
Ah but back in her day she was a real working horse
haulin coal for old man Warren
She was tied up in ribbons and sailed out of Richmond
haulin soldiers during the war
Some say she wrecked and she rides these rails
hopin one day she'll get it right
Others say she roams out pickin up lost souls and
carryin 'em down to Caroline
Instrumental Break
So if you're ever out on the old Suffolk Road
and see this strangest of sights
She's the Ghost of Virginia bound from Raleigh up to Richmond
and you'd best stay out of her line
Yeah you'd best stay out of her line
