Way Down in North Carolina (Waterbound)

From Shipmates (2012)

Traditional

 

 

Waterbound, an' I can't get home  (D)

Waterbound, an' I can't get home  (A-G-D)

Waterbound, an' I can't get home  (D-G)

Down in North Carolina  (D-A-D)

1.  There's chickens crowin' in the old plowfield (3x)

     Down in North Carolina

2.  Now the old man's mad, an' I don't care (3x)

     Because I love his daughter

 

3.  If he don't give her up, then we're gonna run away (3x)

     Way down in North Carolina

 

4.  Well, Nick and Charlie left to go home (3x)

     Before that water rises

 

5.  Dance all night an' don't go home (3x)

     Just stay with me till morning

 

6.  Well, me an' Sam an' Dave's going home (3x)

     Before that water rises

 

7.  Water's wide an' I can't get across (3x)

     Ridin' on my ol' gray horse
