The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down.
The Band.
Album: The Best Of.

Intro: Cmaj7 G7 Am

       C/G  
Virgil Caine is the name,
      F             Am       Dm
And I served on the Danville train,
Am               C/G
'Till Stoneman's cavalry came,
    F           Am     Dm
And tore up the tracks again.

Am                F
In the winter of '65
C                    Dm7
We were hungry, just barely alive
   Am            F
By May the 10th, Richmond had fell
       C      Dm7             D
It's a time I remember, oh so well

(Chorus)
    C/G        Fmaj7           C/G
The night they drove old Dixie down
        Fmaj7      
And the bells were ringing
    C/G        Fmaj7           C/G
The night they drove old Dixie down
        Fmaj7
And the people were singing
           C/G      Am     
They went, "Na, la, la, na, 
G                F        C Am / E
La, la la la, la la la la"

Am                   C/G
Back with my wife in Tennessee
     F           C         Dm
When one day she called to me
Am              C/G
"Virgil, quick, come see,
F              C         Dm
There goes the Robert E. Lee!"

     Am           F
Now, I don't mind chopping wood
      Cmaj7             Dm7
And I don't care if the money's no good
    C                           F
You take what you need, and you leave the rest
                C          Dm7            D
But they should never have taken the very best

(Chorus)
    C/G        Fmaj7           C/G
The night they drove old Dixie down
        Fmaj7      
And the bells were ringing
    C/G        Fmaj7           C/G
The night they drove old Dixie down
        Fmaj7
And the people were singing
           C/G      Am     
They went, "Na, la, la, na, 
G                F        C Am F C Am / E G7
La, la la la, la la la la"

Am             C/G        F               Dm
Like my father before me, I will work the land
    Am              C/G          Fmaj7   C     Dm
And like my brother above me, who took a rebel stand
       E7   Am  F
He was just 18, proud and brave
      Cmaj7           Dm7
But a Yankee laid him in his grave
  C                F
I swear by the mud below my feet
          C                  Dm7
You can't raise a Caine back up
             D
When he's in defeat

(Chorus)
    C/G        Fmaj7           C/G
The night they drove old Dixie down
        Fmaj7      
And the bells were ringing
    C/G        Fmaj7           C/G
The night they drove old Dixie down
        Fmaj7
And the people were singing
           C/G      Am     
They went, "Na, la, la, na, 
G                F        C Am Bm Bb F/A Fm6 G6 D/F#
La, la la la, la la la la".

 (Chorus)
    C/G        Fmaj7           C/G
The night they drove old Dixie down
        Fmaj7      
And the bells were ringing
    C/G        Fmaj7           C/G
The night they drove old Dixie down
        Fmaj7
And the people were singing
           C/G      Am     
They went, "Na, la, la, na, 
G                F        C Am 
La, la la la, la la la la"
