The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down

Joan Baez



    Emi        G                 C                       Emi
1. Virgil Cain is my name and I served on the Danville train
    G               Emi              C                   Emi
   till Stoneman's cavalry came and tore up the tracks again
   C                 G
   in the winter of sixty-five
            Emi         C
   we were hungry just barely alive
               Emi     C
   I drove a train to Richmond, Nefelle
             G        Emi         D
   it was a time I remember very well.

        G           C              G
R: The night they drove old Dixie down
                Emi
   and all the bells were ringin'
        G           C              G
   the night they drove old Dixie down
                Emi
   and all the people were singin'
    G      Emi Ami D
   na na na ...

2. Back with my wife in Tennessee one day she said to me
   "Virgil quick come see there goes the Robert E. Lee"
   Now I don't mind choppin' 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.

R:

3. Like my father before me I'm a workin' man
   and like my brother above me I took a rebel stand
   he was eighteen proud and brave
   but a Yankee laid him in his grave
   I swear by the blood beneath my feet
   you can't raise a Cain back up when he's in defeat.

R:
