(Intro) C         

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

     C/G         F              C/G
The night they drove old Dixie down,
And the bells were ringing.
     C/G         F              C/G
The night they drove old Dixie down,
And the people were singing.  They went...
  C/G     Am        G              F
"La la la la la la, la la la la la la la la la."

Back with my wife in Tennessee, when one day she called to me.
"Virgil, quick!  Come see!  There goes Robert E. Lee!"
Now I don't mind I'm chopping wood, 
And I don't care if the money's no good.
You take what you need and you leave the rest,
But they should never have taken the very best.


Like my father before me, I work the land.
And 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 my the mud below my feet,
You can't raise the cane back up when it's in the feed.


C  C/B  Bb  Am  Ab  G
