Tedcumseh Valley.
Joe Ely.

C                     F   C
The name she gave was Caroline,
    F             C
The daughter of a miner,
    F             C           G/B      Am7
And her ways were free and it seemed to me,
G                   F
The sunshine walked beside her,

C                     F          C
She come from Spencer across the hill,
    F               C
She said her Pa had sent her,
      F      C       G/B       Am7
The coal was low and since the snow,
      G                 F
Would turn the skies to winter.

C                      F        C
She said she'd come to look for work,
    F               C
She was not seeking favors,
      F      C         G/B      Am7
For a dime a day and a place to stay,
      G                   F
She'd turn those hands to labor.

C                                 F         C
Well the times were hard Lord the jobs were few,
F                    C
All through Tecumseh Valley,
        F      C           G/B     Am7
But she asked around and a job she found,
        G             F
Tending bar for Gypsy Sally.

C                   F        C
She saved enough to get back home,
     F                   C
When spring replaced the winter,
        F           C         G/B     Am7       
But her dreams were denied her Pa had died,
         G                   F
When the word came down from Spencer.

C                         F      C
She turned to whorin' out on the streets,
    F                    C
With all the lust inside her,
       F      C     G/B      Am7
It was many a man returned again,
   G           F
To lay himself beside her.

C                        F           C
Well they found her down beneath the stairs,
     F            C
That led to Gypsy Sally's,
       F             C           G/B       Am7
In her hand when she died, was a note that cried,
          G             F
Fare thee well Tecumseh Valley.

C                     F   C
The name she gave was Caroline,
    F             C
The daughter of a miner,
        F         C           G/B       Am7
And her ways were free and it seemed to me,
    G                      F   C
The sunshine walked beside her.
