capo on 3 

this is an approximation of Justin's picking. Take a look at the video if you want to work 
out the proper chords!

[Am].........................[Am7]...........[Am] 
I swear I see her in my dreams sometimes 
[Em]...............................[Am] 
held up in the middle of the night 
shaking like a pistol in a young man's hand 
there in the pale moonlight 
standing up on top of that lonely hill 
spared by the company mine 
is my blue-eyed baby with her best dress on 
in the shadow of a lonely pine 

Ah but back before the war when the company came 
these hills grew wild and free 
Me and baby we'd hide in the hollers low 
away from the cruel sun's heat 
but then they knocked down the timber and burned off the brush 
to get to the riches below 
And when they pulled out they left the coal black ground 
And one pine standing alone 
.................[Dm]...[Em].................[Am] 
So take me home ......to Lone Pine Hill 

Now I signed up back in '61 
I'm an Army of Virginia man 
I been from Manassas to Monocacy all the way to Sayler's Creek 
fightin' for my homeland 
Ah but four years gone and all hope lost 
and Richmond under siege 
we're digging out Five Forks waiting in the rain 
For Sheridan to bring us to our knees 
So take me home to Lone Pine Hill 

.............[C].................................[Am] 
There's a strange moon hanging overhead tonight 
[Dm]....................................[Am] 
and if the rain keeps comin the creeks gonna rise 
[C]...........................................[Am] 
but with the Good Lord's Grace, I may get out of this place 
[Dm]...................................[Em]................[Am] 
And I'll be in her arms come the morning light, I swear 

So God grant me speed, grant me forgiveness 
and carry me all through the night 
take me through your hills and over your rivers 
away from this awful fight 
'cause I never known a man that's ever owned another 
and I ain't never owned nothing of my own 
So after four long years I just can't tell you 
what the hell I've been fightin' for 
So take me home to Lone Pine Hill
