-Great Song! There are a couple of areas in the lyrics that I know that are not correct. 
James sings very clear, but I can't hear a couple segments. 
See if you can finger it out. 
And of course....you all know, the chords never line up where they are suppose to, 
but you get the point. Enjoy!   style='font-size:1px;color:#ffffff;'>
 
Intro: Bm

Verse 1:
                     Bm
There's and old dirt road, just off route 9
               G    A                 Bm
Fades into the lake, at the low water line

Sometimes I wonder, down that road alone
                G    A              Bm
Rememberin' the town, I once called home

I grew up in the valley, every neighbor a friend
                 G     A            Bm
Until the modern world, started creeping in

One day came the lawyers, with cash in hand
                    G       A                   Bm
They swore that our village, would light up the land

Chorus:
          G      A               Bm
The dusky waters, moved cold and slow
                   D                   F#
And the ghosts of a village, still wonder below
               G                            Bm
Homesteads and families, and friends forevermore 
             G      A                      Bm
Haunting the valley, beyond this sparklin' shore

Verse 2: 
               Bm
Surrounded the valley, was a painted red line
                 G   A             Bm 
Drawn by company men, like mocking crane 

A solid reminder, that all the siding must go
                   G      A             Bm
Ah but lost to the rising, dead river's flow

Some folks took the money, started grinding gears
                          G   A            Bm
While the rest of us held out, for 20 hard years

We watched our town, like a photograph fade
                  G    A                Bm
Until the company came, and took it all away

Verse 3:
                 Bm
They tore down a church, and a school house burned
                G      A                       Bm
They dug up the graves, though as the progress turned

They got Dutchy's Store and Heaven's Pool Hall 
                    G      A               Bm
And when the dozers rolled, we shattered a soul

Chorus:
          G      A               Bm
The dusky waters, moved cold and slow
                    D                     F#
And the ghosts of a village, still wonder below
               G                            Bm
Homesteads and families, and friends forevermore 
             G      A                      Bm
Haunting the valley, beyond this sparklin' shore

Instrumental:   Bm  G  A  Bm (X2) 

Verse 4: 
              Bm
Shake off the memories, on my lips of prayer
                         G     A                    Bm
I'm thanking God for the Grace, and the beauty down there

While the porch lights glow all over the states 
                    G        A          Bm
There's nothing but darkness, under the lake

Chorus:
          G      A               Bm
The dusky waters, moved cold and slow
                    D                     F#
And the ghosts of a village, still wonder below
               G                            Bm
Homesteads and families, and friends forevermore 
             G      A                      Bm
Haunting the valley, beyond this sparklin' shore
