Intro - D  C  G

G                                        C             G
They come down from Washington city to our blue ridge mountain home
         D                                 C            G
And they crossed that crooked river to the valley down below
G                                      C              G
I was swimming in that water when they came up to the shore
       D                            C           G
Saying sorry son this won't be dry land here anymore

         D                C           G
Yes and my home town is a half mile down
     C                                   G
Its a half mile of water all around all around
D                 C         G
My home town is a half mile down

G                                      C                 G
First they started their surveying and making up their plans
   D                                    C          G
To flood that peaceful valley just to build Watogga dam
G                                        C                G
Well they brought in their bulldozers and pushed our homes away
         D                       C           G
And they handed me a shovel and sixty cents a day

         D                  C         G
Singing my home town is a half mile down
     C                                   G
Its a half mile of water all around all around
D                 C         G
My home town is a half mile down

        D                                    C                G
So they stripped out all the timber and they leveled all the land
         D                              C                 G
And they drilled and dynamited til they blew the mountains in
 Em                                 Am
I tore down my old home place and I dug up daddy's grave
      C                 D
And I relocated mama to fourteen miles away

    G                           C                G
Now I look out on the water that rose upon that day
        D                             C              G
By the banks of the old Wattoga where I once used to play
G                                       C                 G
Yes I look out on that water where they made their big mistake
    D                                   C           G
And covered up our hometown 'neath that god forsaken lake

        D                C         G
Singing my hometown is a half mile down
     C                                   G
Its a half mile of water all around all around
D                 C         G
My home town is a half mile down
     C                                   G
Its a half mile of water all around all around
D                 C         G
My home town is a half mile down
