Intro       C   D   G    Em     C   D    G

       C                D                 G                Em
Just  Across  the Blue Ridge   Where the High   Meadows    Lay
       C                 D                     G
And the Galax   Spreads Through   The New Mown Hay

           C            D                G          Em
There's a Rusty   Iron Bridge   'Cross a Shady   Ravine
          A                                D
Where the Hard Road   Ends  and  Turns  to Clay

        C                               G              Em 
With  a Suitcase   in His Hand    The  Lonesome  Boy  Stands
A                             D                 D7
Gazin' at   the River Slidin' by  Beneath his  Feet 

         C           D                    G                 Em
But  the Dark Water Springs   through the Black  Rocks  and Flows 
        C                    D                 G
Outta' sight       Where the Twisted  Laurel  Grows

   C   D   G   Em    C    D     G

          C            D               G                Em
Past the Coal-tipple  Towns    in the Cold   December  Rain
     C                    D            G   
Into Charleston Runs  the New   River Train

           C              D                G                Em
Where the Hillsides  are Brown,   and the Broad   Valleys  Stained
     A                                   D
By a Hundred Thousand Lives  of Work and Pain

      C                       G                 Em  
In a Tar-paper Shack   out of Town   Across the Track
          A                            D                  D7
Stands an Old   Used-up Man  Trying to Call   Something   Back

        C               D                G               Em
But his Old   Memories Stained Like the City   in  the   Haze 
    C                   D                  G
And his Days have Run  Together   Like the Rain

        C           D                     G                  Em
And the Dark  Water Springs   Through the Black  Rocks   and Flows
        C                D               G        
Out of Sight  Where the Twisted  Laurel  Grows
