The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down  Johnny Cash

Johnny Cash - The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down
[Bm]Virgil [D]Cain is my name, and I [G]served on the Danville [Bm]train [D]
Till Stonewall's [Bm]cavalry came, and [G]tore up the tracks [Bm]again [G]
In the winter of '[D]65, we were [Bm]hungry, just [G]barely alive [Bm]
By May 10th,[G] Richmond had fell
And itā??s [D]a time, [Bm]I remember oh s[E]o well.
The [D]Night, They [Bm]Drove Old [G]Dixie [D]Down
And all the [Bm]bells were ringinā??
The [D]Night, They [Bm]Drove Old [G]Dixie [D]Down
And all the [Bm]people were singing they went
[D]Na na na na [Bm]na na na [E]na na na na na [G]na na na. [D] [C#] [B] [A] [D] [D] [C#] [B] [A]
[Bm]Back with my wife in [D]Tennessee, when [G]one day, she called to [Bm]me [D]
Virgil, [Bm]quick come see, [G]Virgil there goes the Robert E. [Bm]Lee [G]
Now I don't mind [D]choppinā?? wood
And [Bm]I don't care if the m[G]oney's no good
Just [Bm]take what you need and you [G]leave the rest
But they [D]never should have [Bm]taken, the very [E]best.
[Bm]Like my father be[D]fore me,[G] I will work the [Bm]land [D]
And like my brother a[Bm]bove me[G], he took a rebel [Bm]stand
He was [G]just 18 [D]proud and brave
And a [Bm]Yankee, laid him [G]in his grave
I [Bm]swear my the mud be[G]low my feet
You [D]can't raise the king back [Bm]up when he's in de[E]feat.
