The Old Home Place

	  		* (Perform in Key of Bb) 
 
G                  B7          C         G 
It's been ten long years since I left my home 
                          D 
In the hollow where I was born 
          G         B7              C          G    
Where the cool fall nights make the wood smoke rise, 
                 D         G   
And a fox hunter blows his horn. 
 
G         B7          C             G 
I fell in love with a girl from the town 
                            D 
I thought that she would be true 
  G   B7      C         G 
I ran away to Charlottesville 
                D          G  
And worked in a sawmill or two 
 
(Chorus) 
 
D                          G 
What have they done to the old home place 
A                    D 
Why did they tear it down 
    G         B7        C           G 
And why did I leave the plow in the field 
               D          G 
And look for a job in the town 
 
(Mandolin Solo Chords) 
 G B7 C G G G D D G B7 C G G D G G G G  
 
         G        B7       C        G 
Well the girl ran off with somebody else 
                        D 
The taverns took all my pay 
    G      B7              C        G 
And here I stand where the old home stood 
            D       G 
Before they took it away 
 
                  B7            C         G 
Now the geese fly south and the cold wind moans 
                            D 
As I stand here and hang my head 
     G       B7        C       G 
I've lost my love I've lost my home 
          D               G        
And now I wish that I was dead 
 
D                          G      
What have they done to the old home place 
A                    D 
Why did they tear it down 
    G         B7        C           G   
And why did I leave the plow in the field 
               D          G 
And look for a job in the town 
 
(Guitar Solo Chords) (Dobro Solo Chords) 
 G B C G G G D D G B C G G D G G G G  
 
D                          G 
What have they done to the old home place 
A                    D 
Why did they tear it down 
    G         B7        C           G 
And why did I leave the plow in the field 
               D          G   
And look for a job in the town. 
 
 
This is my first posting so if things don't line up correctly I'll do my best  
to fix it. This is a great old time feeling song which sounds great when played  
with a couple guitars, a banjo, a mandolin, a dobro and a fiddle. Have fun and  
any comments or suggestions would be gladly accepted!
