Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
There is an excellent version of this song with the capo on the 5th fret that is just like the recording and
videos.  

This version below is ok if you don't have a capo and want to sing in a lower key. 

Carolina Chocolate Drops
Leaving Eden

[Intro]

C Am (2x)


[Verse]

C                  Am
Hush now, don't you wake up
           C              Am
We'll be leaving at first light
         Dm           C
Mama's buying you a mockingbird
   Em          F
To lull you through the night

      C                Am
We'll cross the Dan by morning
         C                  Am
Here's a blanket for you to share
        Dm               C
They're building down in Georgia
      Em           F
Daddy hears he'll find work there


[Chorus]

        Dm                C
And the mockingbird can't sing
         Em           F
Like the crying of a dove
    Dm               C
And I can't tell my daughters
        Am             
All the things that I'm scared of
    F         C                    Em        F
But I am not afraid of that bright glory up above
Dm            C             Em        F            
Dying's just another way to leave the ones you love


[Verse]

    C            Am
No work for the working man
     C              Am
Just one more empty mill
Dm            C
Hard times in Rockingham
Em           F
Hard times harder still

    C                Am
The crows are in the kitchen
    C              Am
The wolves at the door
    Dm               C       Em   F
Our fathers' land of Eden is paradise no more



[Chorus]

        Dm                C
And the mockingbird can't sing
         Em           F
Like the crying of a dove
    Dm               C
And I can't tell my daughters
        Am             
All the things that I'm scared of
    F         C                    Em        F
But I am not afraid of that bright glory up above
Dm            C             Em        F            
Dying's just another way to leave the ones you love


[Instrumental]

    C               Am
My sister stayed in Eden
    C                Am
Her husband's got some land
   Dm             C                 Em         F
An agent for the county thinks that they might make a stand
  C            Am
A hard life of working
     C               Am
With nothing much to show
  Dm           C            Em   F
A long life of leaving with nowhere to go


[Chorus]

        Dm                C
And the mockingbird can't sing
         Em           F
Like the crying of a dove
    Dm               C
And I can't tell my daughters
        Am             
All the things that I'm scared of
    F         C                    Em        F
But I am not afraid of that bright glory up above
Dm            C             Em        F            
Dying's just another way to leave the ones you love
