Lone Pine Hill

Intro: Am     C     G     Am     Em    G    Am 

Am        C             G          Am 
I swear I see her in my dreams sometimes  
     Em        G             Am 
held up in the middle of the night  
Am             C           G           Am 
shaking like a pistol in a young man's hand  
Em           G        Am 
there in the pale moonlight  
Am             C           G      Am 
standing up on top of that lonely hill  
Em            G       Am 
spared by the company mine  
      Am        C             G          Am 
is my blue-eyed baby with her best dress on  
       Em          G      Am 
in the shadow of a lonely pine  

       Am              C            G       Am 
Ah but back before the war when the company came  
      Em         G        Am 
these hills grew wild and free  
       Am        C           G       Am 
Me and baby we'd hide in the hollows low  
Em            G           Am 
away from the cruel sun's heat  
              Am               C          G              Am 
but then they knocked down the timber and burned off the brush  
   Em         G        Am 
to get to the riches below  
              Am              C        G          Am 
And when they pulled out they left the cold black ground  
    Em       G        Am       
And one pine standing alone  
           Dm          Em        
So take me home 
Lone Pine Hill  

    Am       C          G     Am 
Now I signed up back in sixty-one  
       Em         G     Am 
I'm an Army of Virginia man  
            Am            C              G      Am 
I been from Manassas to Moconacy all the way to Sayler's Creek  
Em           G      Am 
fightin' for my homeland  
       Am         C        G        Am 
Ah but four years gone and all hope lost  
    Em       G     Am 
and Richmond under siege  
      Am          C          G              Am 
We're digging out Five Forks waiting in the rain  
    Em          G               Am 
For Sheridan to bring us to our knees  
           Dm          Em        
So take me home 
Lone Pine Hill  

C              G                        Am 
     There's a strange moon hanging overhead tonight  
C               G                          Am 
     and if the rain keeps comin' then the creeks gonna rise  
Dm             G                 C     C/B     Am 
  but with the Good Lord's Grace, I'll make it out of this place  
Dm                                  Em               Am  
  and I'll be in your arms come the morning light, I swear  

   Am           C          G        Am 
So God grant me speed, and grant me forgiveness  
    Em       G               Am 
and carry me all through the night  
Am                   C         G         Am 
take me through your hills and over your rivers  
 Em            G     Am 
away from this awful fight  
         Am            C          G          Am 
'Cause I never known a man that's ever owned another  
            Em          G             Am 
and I ain't never owned nothing of my own  
         Am        C       G          Am 
So after four long years I just can't tell you  
         Em             G        Am 
what the hell I've been fightin' for  
           Dm          Em        
So take me home 
Lone Pine Hill
