Capo 4                                                                                                       Harvest Time

Lonesome River Band

 

      G                         D                          C                   G

1. Cool and cloudy nights upon Boll Mountain, Alabama

2. Flashing through my mind was Big Homer’s reputation

4. The clouds rolled by and then I saw the shadow of a lady

 

                                              D                          G

1. I was stealing corn from Homer Lawson’s Field

2. A man who really didn’t give a damn

4. It was Homer’s lovely daughter Julie Ann

 

            G                    D                        C                          G

1. The rattle of the cornstalks and the bark of Homer’s hound dog

2. They say he shot ol’ Mountain Joe for just one ear of corn

4. I smelled the perfume in her hair as she sat down beside me

 

                                   D                              G

1. Made me hug the ground and lie dead still

2. And laughed the day they laid him in the ground

4. Whispered “Papa’s running moonshine again”

                       C                                                G        

          3. Well, I can hear the breaking of the sticks from someone’s footsteps

5. I thank God for cloudy nights and Alabama’s whiskey stills

 

                       G                     D                       G

          3. But shaky legs just can’t get up and run

          5. And harvest time in Homer Lawson’s field

 

                       C                                           G 

          3. And as I lay there breathless, the next thing I expected

          5. I thank God for cloudy nights and Alabama’s whiskey stills

 

                          G                           D                         G

          3. Was a blast of Hell from Homer Lawson’s gun

          5. And harvest time in Homer Lawson’s field
