Tecumseh Valley

Townes van Zandt / Steve Earle: Train A Comin' (1995)

G C G
The name she gave was Caroline,
C G
The daughter of a miner.
C G Em
Her ways were free; it seemed to me,
D C
That sunshine walked beside her.
 
G C G
she came from Spencer across the hill,
C G
She said her Pa had sent her,
C G Em
'Cause the coal was low and soon the snow
D C
Would turn the skies to winter.
 
Well she said she'd come to look for work, 
She was not seeking favors. 
For a dime a day and a place to stay 
She'd turn those hands to labor. 
 
The times were hard, Lord, the jobs were few, 
All through Tecumseh Valley. 
But she asked around and a job she found 
Tending Bar for Gypsy Sally. 
 
She saved enough to get back home 
When spring replaced the winter. 
But her dreams were denied, her Pa had died, 
The word came down from Spencer. 
 
She turned to whorin' out in the streets 
With all the lust inside her. 
And it was many a man returned again 
To lay himself beside her. 
 
They found her down beneath the stairs 
That led to Gypsy Sally's. 
In her hand, when she died, Was a note that cried: 
Fare thee well - Tecumseh Valley. 
 
The name she gave was Caroline...
