Half Mile Down  Old Crow Medicine Show

Intro - D C G
[G]They come down from Washington city to ou[C]r blue ridge m[G]ountain home
And they [D]crossed that crooked river to the [C]valley down b[G]elow
[G]I was swimming in that water when they [C]came up to the [G]shore
Saying [D]sorry son this won't be dry l[C]and here any[G]more
Yes and m[D]y home town is a [C]half mile do[G]wn
Its a[C] half mile of water all around all a[G]round
[D]My home town is a [C]half mile [G]down
[G]First they started their surveying and [C]making up their pl[G]ans
To [D]flood that peaceful valley just to bu[C]ild Watogga[G] dam
[G]Well they brought in their bulldozers and[C] pushed our homes[G] away
And they [D]handed me a shovel and s[C]ixty cents a[G] day
Singing m[D]y home town is a ha[C]lf mile do[G]wn
Its a[C] half mile of water all around all a[G]round
[D]My home town is a [C]half mile [G]down
So they [D]stripped out all the timber and they [C]leveled all the l[G]and
And they [D]drilled and dynamited til they [C]blew the mountains[G] in
I[Em] tore down my old home place and I [Am]dug up daddy's grave
And I [C]relocated mama to [D]fourteen miles away
Now [G]I look out on the water that[C] rose upon that d[G]ay
By the b[D]anks of the old Wattoga where [C]I once used to [G]play
[G]Yes I look out on that water where they [C]made their big mis[G]take
And [D]covered up our hometown 'neath that [C]god forsaken[G] lake
Singing [D]my hometown is a [C]half mile [G]down
Its a[C] half mile of water all around all a[G]round
[D]My home town is a [C]half mile [G]down
Its a[C] half mile of water all around all a[G]round
[D]My home town is a [C]half mile [G]down
