Lone Pine Hill  Justin Townes Earle

|: Am C G Am Em G Am :|
[Am]I swear I [C]see her in my [G]dreams some[Am]times
held [Em]up in the [G]middle of the [Am]night
[Am]shaking like a [C]pistol in a [G]young man's [Am]hand
[Em]there in the [G]pale moon[Am]light
[Am]standing up on [C]top of that [G]lonely [Am]hill
[Em]spared by the [G]company [Am]mine
is my [Am]blue-eyed [C]baby with her [G]best dress [Am]on
in the [Em]shadow of a [G]lonely [Am]pine
Ah but [Am]back before the [C]war when the [G]company [Am]came
these [Em]hills grew [G]wild and [Am]free
Me and [Am]baby we'd [C]hide in the [G]hollows [Am]low
[Em]away from the [G]cruel sun's [Am]heat
but then they [Am]knocked down the [C]timber and [G]burned off the [Am]brush
to [Em]get to the [G]riches be[Am]low
And when they [Am]pulled out they [C]left the [G]cold black [Am]ground
And [Em]one pine [G]standing [Am]alone
So take me [Dm]home[Em]
Lone Pine [Am]Hill
Now [Am]I signed [C]up back in [G]sixty-[Am]one
I'm an [Em]Army of Vir[G]ginia [Am]man
I been from [Am]Manassas to Mo[C]conacy all the [G]way to [Am]Sayler's Creek
[Em]fightin' for [G]my home[Am]land
Ah but [Am]four years [C]gone and [G]all hope [Am]lost
and [Em]Richmond [G]under [Am]siege
We're [Am]digging out [C]Five Forks [G]waiting in the [Am]rain
For [Em]Sheridan to [G]bring us to our [Am]knees
So take me [Dm]home[Em]
Lone Pine [Am]Hill
[C] There's a [G]strange moon hanging over[Am]head tonight
[C] and if the [G]rain keeps comin' then the [Am]creeks gonna rise
[Dm] but with the [G]Good Lord's Grace,[C] I'll [C/B]make it [Am]out of this place
[Dm] and I'll be in your arms come the [Em]morning light, I [Am]swear
So [Am]God grant me [C]speed, and [G]grant me [Am]forgiveness
and [Em]carry me [G]all through the [Am]night
[Am]take me through your [C]hills and [G]over your [Am]rivers
a[Em]way from this [G]awful [Am]fight
'Cause I [Am]never known a [C]man that's [G]ever owned [Am]another
and I ain't [Em]never owned [G]nothing of my [Am]own
So after [Am]four long [C]years I [G]just can't [Am]tell you
what the [Em]hell I've been [G]fightin' [Am]for
So take me [Dm]home[Em]
Lone Pine [Am]Hill
