                        ** CAPO 1st FRET **

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


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


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


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


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

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

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

Pretty good overall, but it should be Dm, not D. Play along with the recording and you'll be able to tell that it's Dm.
