Am C G Am C G Am Em

Am             C
I went down to Taneytown
G              Am
I went down to Taneytown
C                   G          Am  Em
To see what I could see
Am              C 
My mama told me never go
    G         Am
I'm damn near 22 years old
C                     G              Am   Em7
Sometimes I feel this holler swallow me
Am             C 
She ran off to Gettysburg
 G                     Am 
Went off with that new beau of hers
  C               G   Am   Em
I snuck off after dark
       Am                C
It's a long way down the county road
    G                         Am      
The stars were bright and the moon was low
C                 G                 Am       Em     
Down to where the black top highway starts
Am             C
I went down to Taneytown
G              Am
I went down to Taneytown
C              G                Am   Em
I went down to see what I could see

SOLO

Am            C
Now everybody stared at me
G                           Am
You'd think that they ain't never seen
C             G      Am Em
A colored boy before
Am                              C
Well they jumped at me and they called me names
         G                        Am
And they whoopped me sure but the sheriff came
C               G                         Am   Em
I slipped off   ran through the dry goods store
Am             C
Now I ran down Division Street
G                     Am                 
And some of them boys followed me
C                    G     Am  Em
Down to the railroad track
Am                             C
Well there was four of them and I can't fight
G                Am
But I got my old Randall knife
C                  G                Am    Em
I cut that boy and I never did look back
Am             C
I went down to Taneytown
G              Am
I went down to Taneytown
C              G                Am  Em
I went down to see what I could see

SOLO

Am                    C
Across the fields and woods I run
       G             G
Like a bullet from a rabbit gun
C                G   Am  Em 
Back home to my bed
Am                  C
Now Ma come in from Gettysburg
G                 Am                 
Her and that new beau of hers
C                 G                Am    Em
Boy you look like hell  is all she said
 Am              C
A month went by without a word
G                  Am
Somebody down the holler heard
C                  G   Am   Em
Bout that boy they hung
Am                     C
He begged those men to spare his life
      G                  Am
But I dropped my bloody Randall knife
C                        G                  Am  Em
He picked it up so they thought he was the one
Am             C
I went down to Taneytown
G              Am
I went down to Taneytown
C             G              Am
I ain't going back there anymore
