The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down.
Joan Baez.
Album: Greatest Hits & Others.
Capo 1.

Intro: Am Am7 C x 2 - C Am7 Am
       C
Virgil Caine is my name,
      F                     Am   C
And I drove on the Danville train,
              Am
Until so much cavalry came,
         F             Am
And tore up the tracks again,
F                C
In the winter of sixty-five,
        Am           F
We were hungry, just barely alive,  
  Am                F
I took the train to Richmond that fell,
       C                Am     D
It's a time I remember, oh, so well.

Chorus:
    C          Am        F     C
The night they drove Old Dixie down,
            Am
And all the bells were ringing,
    C          Am        F     C
The night they drove Old Dixie down,
            Am
And all the people were singing,
          C             Am
They went, la, la-la-la-la,
       D               F       C Em7 Am G C Em7 Am G7
La-la, la-la, la-la-la-la la la,

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

Chorus:
    C          Am7       F     C
The night they drove Old Dixie down,
            Am
And all the bells were ringing,
    C          Am        F     C
The night they drove Old Dixie down,
            Am
And all the people were singing,
          C             Am
They went, la, la-la-la-la,
       D               F       C Em7 Am G C Em7 Am G7
La-la, la-la, la-la-la-la la la,

Am                    C
Like my father before me,
F             Am
I'm a working man,
    C                 Am
And like my brother before me,
         F     Am
I took a rebel stand,
             F        C
Well, he was just 18, proud and brave,
      Am              F
But a Yankee laid him in his grave,
  Am                 F
I swear by the blood below my feet,
          C                    Am
You can't raise the Caine back up,
             D
When it's in defeat.

Chorus:
    C          Am        F     C
The night they drove Old Dixie down,
            Am
And all the bells were ringing,
    C          Am        F     C
The night they drove Old Dixie down,
            Am
And all the people were singing,
          C             Am
They went, la, la-la-la-la,
       D               F        A
La-la, la-la, la-la-la-la la la.
