             C               C  F        C
The name she gave was Caroline
                F       F     C     C
Daughter of a miner
                        F         F           Em          Am
And her ways were free and it seemed to me
                G           G         F        F      C     C
The sunshine walked beside her
              C               C  F        C
She came from Spencer across the hill
                F       F     C     C
She said her Pa had sent her
                        F         F           Em          Am
'Cause the coal was low and soon the snow
                G           G         F        F      C     C
Would turn the skies to winter
               C            C   F        C
She said she'd come to look for work
                F       F     C     C
She was not seeking favor
                        F         F           Em          Am
For a dime a day and a place to stay
                G           G         F        F      C     C
She turned those hands to labor
              C                C        F        C
But the times were hard, Lord, and the jobs were few
                  F       F     C     C
All through Tecumseh Valley
                        F         F           Em          Am
She'd ask around, and a job she found
                G           G         F        F      C     C
Tendin' bar at Gypsy Sally's
          C             C    F        C
She saved enough to get back home
                    F       F     C     C
And spring replaced the winter
                        F         F           Em          Am
But her dreams were denied, her Pa had died
                G           G         F        F      C     C
The word come down from Spencer
                 C              C   F        C
So she turned to whorin' out on the streets
                   F       F     C     C
With all the lust inside her
                        F         F           Em          Am
And it was many a man returned again
                G           G         F        F      C     C
To lay himself beside her
               C            C   F        C
They found her down beneath the stairs
                F       F     C     C
That led to Gypsy Sally's
                        F         F           Em          Am
And in her hand when she died was a note that cried
                G           G         F        F      C     C
"Fare thee well, Tecumseh Valley".
