[Intro]
G  C  G  D  G

[Verse]
G                   
I left old Kentucky in a blinding fog
C                                     G
headed for the southland haulin cedar logs.
G
Along around Celina I saw the sky turn blue
G                        D              G
Headed for the Southland with a six man crew.

[Chorus] 
G
Cumberland River carry me
C                              G
on down the line to sunny Tennessee.
G
Shirley Mae's awaitin' as lonely as can be
G                       D                  G
Cumberland River let me feel that southern breeze.

G  C  G  D  G

[Verse] 
G
Two days on the river the weather it got rough
C                                           G
Headed for the south bank we hit a big rock bluff.
G
Workin' like the devil to turn this boat around
G                            D                G
Two miles south of Carthage we made it safe and sound.

[Chorus] 
G
Cumberland River carry me
C                              G
on down the line to sunny Tennessee.
G
Shirley Mae's awaitin' as lonely as can be
G                       D                  G
Cumberland River let me feel that southern breeze.

G  C  G  D  G

[Verse] 
G
Two more days of travel and then I'll draw my pay
C                                          G
Headed for the southland to see my Shirley Mae
G
A part a can of sorghum and a sack of flour
G                       D              G
Fifteen dollars waitin' seven cents an hour.

[Chorus] 
G
Cumberland River carry me
C                              G
on down the line to sunny Tennessee.
G
Shirley Mae's awaitin' as lonely as can be
G                       D                  G
Cumberland River let me feel that southern breeze.

G  C  G  D  G

[Chorus] 
G
Cumberland River carry me
C                              G
on down the line to sunny Tennessee.
G
Shirley Mae's awaitin' as lonely as can be
G                       D                  G
Cumberland River let me feel that southern breeze.
G                       D                  G
Cumberland River let me feel that southern breeze.

D  G
