G)The name she gave was (C)Caro(G)line
       The (C)daughter of a (G)miner
       and her (C)ways were free and it (G)seemed to (Em) me
       The (D) sunshine walked (C) beside her

       (G)she came from Spencer (C) 'cross the (G) hill
       She said (C) her Pa had (G) sent Her
       Cause the (C)coal was low and soon (G) the (Em)snow
       would (D) turn the skies to (C) winter

       well she said she'd come to look for work
       she was not seeking favors
       for a dime a day and a place to stay
       She'd turn those hands to labor

       The times were hard Lord the jobs were few
       All through Tecumseh Valley
       But she asked around and a job she found
       Tending Bar for Gypsy Sally

       She saved enough to get back home
       When spring replaced the winter
       But her dreams were denied her Pa had died
       The word came down from Spencer

       She turned to whorin' out in the streets
       with all the list inside her
       It was many a man returned again
       To lay himself beside her

       Well they found her down beneath the stairs
       That led to Gypsy Sally's
       In her hand when she died
       was a note that cried
       Fare thee well Tecumseh Valley
