Banks of the James - Wrinkle Neck Mules
Track 10 - Apprentice to Ghosts (2012)
Standard Tuning

[Intro]
D G 

[Verse]
C         G        D 
River was running, trembling low
C              G            D 
Just like your voice on the payphone
C               G             D 
Words have been whispered but none were so sweet
       C           G           D
As the promise you made to betroth

[Verse]
C           G           D 
Down by the trusses and crossing of ties
          C           G           D 
Where the black water touches the land
C               G            D 
Lights from the city and the light in your eye
      Em         D           C
Would witness me taking your hand

[Chorus]
            G                            F      C
But all the lights of Surry County never saw anything
G                              F         C
Reflected across the river and fell upon me
Em                 D             C
Light is fading to day, waited around
       G            D         
On the Banks of the James
G

[Verse]
C            G          D     
Long are the hours that pass in between
C            G          D  
Dusk and the blanket of nightfall
C              G          D  
Bright are the beams that shine through the branches
Em       D          C
Eager to see your arrival

[Chorus]
            G                            F      C
But all the lights of Surry County never saw anything
G                              F         C
Reflected across the river and fell upon me
Em                 D             C
Light is fading to day, waited around
       G            D         
On the Banks of the James
G

[Solo]
C G D
C G D
C G D
Em D C 

[Bridge]
Am                           C
Currents run strong and they carry along
      Em                         D
All debris that they pass on the way
Am                    C
Carry you down slowly turning to brown
         Em      D          C
Like the man you came to betray
        Em         D            G
But you never came back up that day

[Chorus]
            G                            F      C
But all the lights of Surry County never saw anything
G                              F         C
Reflected across the river and fell upon me
Em                 D             C
Light is fading to day, waited around
       G            D                
On the Banks of the James

[Verse]
G                     F           C
Where the black water touches the land
    G                       F            C
You gave me your word you’d give me your hand
G                F           C
Why’d you go and betray your man?
G                     F         C          
Now you’ll never come back up again
G
