Capo on the 5th fret

Am                                              G
  Caleb Meyer he lived alone, In them hollerin pines 
  G                             D                                       Am
  And he made a little whiskey for himself said it helped to pass the time
  Am                                                  G
  Long one evening in back of my house, Caleb come around
  G                          D                                 Am
  And he called my name till I went out, With no-one else around


  Am                                                    G
  Caleb Meyer your ghost is gonna wear them rattling chains 
  G                  D                                  Am
  But when I go to sleep at night, Don't you call my name


  Am                                                      G
  Where's your husband Nellie Cane, Wheres your darlin' gone? 
  G                         D                               Am
  Did he go on down the mountainside, and leave you all alone?
  Am                                                             G
  Yes my husband's gone to Bowling Green, to do some business there 
  G                       D                                  Am
  Then Caleb threw that bottle down, And grabbed me by my hair 


  Am                                                    G
  Caleb Meyer your ghost is gonna wear them rattling chains 
  G                  D                                  Am
  But when I go to sleep at night, Don't you call my name


  Am                                                  G
  He threw me in the needle bed, Across my dress he lay  
  G                    D                                 Am
  He pinned my hands above my head, And I commenced to pray
  Am                                                  G
  I cried my God I am your child, Send your angels down
  G                      D                               Am
  Then feeling with my finger tips, The bottle neck I found 
  Am                                                G
  I drew that glass across his neck, Fine as any blade  
  G                           D                                Am
  Then I felt his blood pour fast and hot, Around me where I laid 
 

  Am                                                    G
  Caleb Meyer your ghost is gonna wear them rattling chains 
  G                  D                                  Am
  But when I go to sleep at night, Don't you call my name

  Am                                                    G
  Caleb Meyer your ghost is gonna wear them rattling chains 
  G                  D                                  Am
  But when I go to sleep at night, Don't you call my name
