Goin' Back To Harlan - Emmylou Harris
(capo 1)
(intro) Am C F G (x2)
(verse 1)
There [Am]were no cuckoos, no[C] sycamores.
We [F]played about the [G]forest floor
[Dm] underneath the [C]silver maples,
[G] the balsams and the [Am]sky.
(verse 2)
We [Am]popped the heads off [C]dandelions,
as[F]suming roles from [G]nursery rhymes.
[Dm] Rested on the [C]riverbank,
[G] and grew up by and [Am]by.
[G] And grew up by and [Am]by[Am]
[C] Frail my heart apart,
and [G]play me a little Shady Grove.
[C] Ring the bells of rhymney,
til they [G]ring inside my head forever.
[C] Bounce the bow, rock the [G]gallows
for the hangman's [Am]reel.
And [G]wake the devil from his [C]dre-eeee-[G]eam
I'm goin back to [C]Harlan, oh oh oh [G]oh
I'm goin back to [C]Harlan, oh oh oh [G]oh
I'm going back to [Am]Harlan[Am]
(verse 3)
[Am]And if you were [C]Willie Moore
and [F]I was Barbara [G]Allen,
or Fair[Dm] Ellen all sad at the [C]cabin door
a-[G]weeping and a-pinin' for [Am]love.
A-[G]weeping and a-pinin' for [Am]love.[Am]
