THE NIGHT THEY DROVE OLD DIXIE DOWN - Robbie Robertson CAPO 1st FRET Am C/G F Am Virgil Cain is the name and I served on the Danville train C/G Am F Am Till Stoneman's cavalry came and tore up the tracks a-gain F C Am F In the winter of sixty-five, we were hungry, just barely alive Am F By May the tenth, Richmond had fell C Am D It was a time I re-member all so well CHORUS C/G F C/G The night they drove old Dixie down Am And all the bells were ringing C/G F C/G The night they drove old Dixie down Am And all the people were singing. They went... C/G Am D F Na na na na na na, na na na na na na na na na Am C/G F Am Back with my wife in Tennessee when one day she called to me C/G Am F Am "Virgil, quick come see! There goes Robert E. Lee" F C Am F Now, I don't mind choppin' wood and I don't care if the money's no good Am F You take what you need and you leave the rest C Am D But they should never have taken the very best (REPEAT CHORUS) Am C/G F Am Like my father be-fore me, I will work the land C/G Am F Am And like my brother above me, who took a rebel stand F C He was just eighteen, proud and brave Am F But a Yankee laid him in his grave Am F I swear by the mud be-low my feet C Am D You can't raise a Cain back up when he's in de-feat (REPEAT CHORUS)
