Old Home place (BGsongs)

G B7 C G It's been ten long years since I left my home D In the holler where I was born G B7 C G Where the cool fall nights make the wood smoke rise D G And the 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 D G CHORUS: What have they done to the old home place? A7 D7 Why did they tear it down? G B7 C G And why did I leave my plow in the field? D G And look for a job in the town? repeat INTRO G B7 C G Well, the girl ran off with somebody else D The tariffs took all my pay G B7 C G And here I stand where the old home stood D G Before they took it away G B7 C G Now the geese fly south and the cold wind blows 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 CHORUS repeat INTRO CHORUS
