Old Home Place

Song Author Dean Webb og Mitchell Jayne Performer: J.D. Crowe Submitted by: Anonymous

[G]It's been ten long [B7]years since [C]I left my [G]home
In the hollow where I was [D7]born   
Where the [G]cool fall [B7]nights make the [C]wood smoke [G]rise
And the fox hunter [D7]blows his [G]horn

I fell in [B7]love with a [C]girl from the [G]town
I thought that she would be [D7]true   
[G]I ran a[B7]way to [C]Charlottes[G]ville
And worked in a [D7]sawmill [G]too  

[D7]What have they done to the [G]old home place
[A7]Why did they tear it [D7]down   
And [G]why did I [B7]leave my [C]plow in the [G]field
And look for a [D7]job in the [G]town

Well the girl ran [B7]off with [C]somebody [G]else
The tariffs took all my [D7]pay   
[G]And here I [B7]stand where the [C]old home [G]stood
Before they [D7]took it [G]away

Now the geese fly [B7]south and the [C]cold wind [G]moans
As I stand her and hang my [D7]head   
[G]I've lost my [B7]love I've [C]lost my [G]home
And now I [D7]wish that I was [G]dead

[D7]What have they done to the [G]old home place
[A7]Why did they tear it [D7]down   
And [G]why did I [B7]leave my [C]plow in the [G]field
And look for a [D7]job in the [G]town

[D7]What have they done to the [G]old home place
[A7]Why did they tear it [D7]down   
And [G]why did I [B7]leave my [C]plow in the [G]field
And look for a [D7]job in the [G]town


It's been ten long years since I left my home
In the hollow where I was born
Where the cool fall nights make the wood smoke rise
And the fox hunter blows his horn

I fell in love with a girl from the town
I thought that she would be true
I ran away to Charlottesville
And worked in a sawmill too

What have they done to the old home place
Why did they tear it down
And why did I leave my plow in the field
And look for a job in the town

Well the girl ran off with somebody else
The tariffs took all my pay
And here I stand where the old home stood
Before they took it away

Now the geese fly south and the cold wind moans
As I stand her and hang my head
I've lost my love I've lost my home
And now I wish that I was dead

What have they done to the old home place
Why did they tear it down
And why did I leave my plow in the field
And look for a job in the town

What have they done to the old home place
Why did they tear it down
And why did I leave my plow in the field
And look for a job in the town
