The Night They Drove  Joan Baez

[C]   [Am]  Virgil [C]Caine is my name, and I drove on th[F]e Danville train,                 [Am]
     '[C]Til Stoneman's Calvery [Am]came and tore up the track[F]s again.                    [Am]
     [F]In the winter of '65, W[C]e were hungry, just b[Am]arely alive.    [F]
[Am]     By May the tenth, Richmond[F] had fell, it's a time I remember, oh[C] so well,    [Am]                     [D]

The Nigh[C]t They Drove O[Am]ld Dixie Down, [F]and the b[C]ells were ringing,   [Am]              [F]

The Nigh[C]t They Drove Ol[Am]d Dixie Down, [F]and the p[C]eople were singin'.  T[Am]hey went        [F]
[C]La,  La, La, L[Am]a, La, La,     La, La[D], La, La, La, La,   [F] La, La,                        [C]
     B[Am]ack with my wife in Tennessee[C], When one day she said to [F]me,                                [Am]
  [C]   "Virgil, q[Am]uick, come see, there goe[F]s a Robert E. Lee!"                [Am]
   [F]  Now I don't mind choppin' w[C]ood, and I don't care if the m[A]on[m]ey's no good.         [F]
     Y[Am]a take what ya need and ya leave the rest,     [F]
     But they shoul[C]d never have taken the very b[Am]est.                [D]
  [Am]   Like my father befor[C]e me, I will wor[F]k the land,        [Am]

     L[C]ike my brother above me,[Am] who took a rebel stan[F]d.                [Am]

     H[F]e was just eighteen, proud and br[C]ave,  But a Yankee laid him in his gr[Am]ave,                   [F]
   [Am]  I swear by the mud below my [F]feet,
     Yo[C]u can't raise a Caine back up when he's in[Am] defeat.                   [D]
(Chorus and fade)
