	The night they drove Old Dixie down and the bells were ringing 

	    G/D       Cmaj7         G/D          Cmaj7

	Em                  D    C              C/B       Am

	Em/B               C                    D                 Am

	 Ya' take what ya' need and ya' leave the rest

  Verse 3; repeat verse 2 chord progression 

	Like my father before me, I will work the land 

	Like my brother above me, who took a rebel stand 

	He was just eighteen, proud and brave, but a Yankee laid him in his grave 

	I swear by the mud below my feet 

	You can't raise a Caine back up when he's in defeat 

  

  (Repeat chorus)
