Capo 1st Fret

CHORD : [Fm7] (242222)

INTRO:  [D] - [G]  - [Bm] - [A] - [D]

VERSE ONE
[D]           [G]         [Bm]   [A]
Lydi lit a cigarette today
[D]                [G]              [Bm]  [A]
ancient fumblin' fingers in her way.
        [G]              [Bm]               [A]              [G]
From a forty year old coffee cup...she sipped a bit of gin,
[Bm]           [A]                 [G]
..closed her eyes and let the memories in.


VERSE TWO

[D]                [G]             [Bm]    [A]
She lives in the old place all alone.
[D]                    [G]               [Bm]    [A]
Keeps in touch with neighbors by the phone.
       [G]            [Bm]            [A]                  [G]
Grows roses on the graves of her first born and his father,
[Bm]         [A]                  [G]
...and the coal trucks never bothered her


BRIDGE

[D]    [Bm]          [F#m7]             [G]
Oh,..Lydi let him go...the boy is gone.
[Bm]              [A]              [G]                   
...Her mother struggled as she tore him from her arms
[D]     [Bm]        [F#m7]              [G]
Oh,..Lydia your tears are heavens rain
[Bm]         [A]             [G]
...But she never was the same.


VERSE TWO

[D]             [G]                 [Bm]   [A]
...The cotton dress...the satin shoes.
[D]         [G]                 [Bm]              [A]
...Indian summer's  sun....dressed in amber hues.
[G]           [Bm]          [A]           [G]            
...Spending time with a coal miners son.
[Bm]       [A]               [G]
...To an old-time fiddle tune.


VERSE THREE

[D]              [G]         [Bm]            [A]
...Months blew by like a breeze...that year.
[D]              [G]                 [Bm]             [A]
...They wed in June...and by the fall a boy was here.
 [G]                   [Bm]                   [A]          [G]
Word came down from Bigstone...there's a fire in the mine.
[Bm]      [A]              [G]
...and eleven men they couldn't find.

BRIDGE

[D]    [Bm]          [F#m7]             [G]
Oh,..Lydi let him go...the boy is gone.
[Bm]             [A]               [G]                   
...Her mother struggled as she tore him from her arms
[D]    [Bm]         [F#m7]              [G]
Oh,..Lydia your tears are heavens rain
[Bm]         [A]             [G]
...But she never was the same.


INSTRUMENTAL: OVER VERSE


VERSE / VOCALS

[D]                   [G]                 [Bm]  [A]
...She watched them pull him from the hole.
[D]          [G]                  [Bm]               [A]
...The over-alls he wore was blackened by the smoke.
[G]          [Bm]                    [A]                [G]
Lydi twice had this dream...and twice it had come true.
[Bm]               [A]                [G] 
...Now, when she saw his father's boots...she knew


BRIDGE REPEAT


OUTRO:VERSE
[D]           [G]         [Bm]    [A]
Lydi  lit a cigarette today
[D]                [G]              [Bm]   [A]
ancient fumblin' fingers in her way.
        [G]             [Bm]                [A]              [G]
From a forty year old coffee cup...she sipped a bit of gin,
[Bm]            [A]                 [G]
...closed her eyes and let the memories in.
