Am     C/G                     F                      Dm
Virgil Caine is the name and I served on the Danville train
Am              C/G              F                  Dm
Till Stoneman's cavalry came and tore up the tracks again.
Am               F                  C/G          Dm
In the winter of sixty-five we were hungry, just barely alive.
Am               F                        C/G    Dm              D
By May the tenth Richmond had fell it?s a time I remember oh so well.

C/G            F               C/G
The night they drove old Dixie down
        F
And the bells were ringing
    C/G        F               C/G
The night they drove old Dixie down
            F  
And all the people were singing
         C/G       F        Dm       F           
They went la la la la la la la la la la la la la.

Am                   C/G            F                     Dm
Back with my wife in Tennessee when one day she called to me
Am      C/G            F                    Dm      
Virgil, quick come see there goes Robert E. Lee!
    Am           F                   C/G               Dm         
Now I don t mind chopping wood and I don't care if the money's no good.
    Am                         F                              C/G        Dm             D   
You take what you need and you leave the rest but they should never have taken the very best.

C/G            F               C/G
The night they drove old Dixie down
        F
And the bells were ringing
    C/G        F               C/G
The night they drove old Dixie down
            F  
And all the people were singing
         C/G       F        Dm       F           
They went la la la la la la la la la la la la la.

Am               C/G     F                 Dm
Like my father before me I will work the land
Am                   C/G     F                  Dm
And like my brother above me who took a rebel stand
       Am             F                      C/G             Dm
He was just eighteen, proud and brave, but a Yankee laid him in his grave.
  Am                 F                     C/G                Dm                 D
I swear by the mud below my feet you can't raise a Caine back up when he's in defeat.


C/G            F               C/G
The night they drove old Dixie down
        F
And the bells were ringing
    C/G        F               C/G
The night they drove old Dixie down
            F  
And all the people were singing
         C/G       F        Dm       F           
They went la la la la la la la la la la la la la.
