Blue Ridge Mountain Sky

Marshall Tucker Band

 

Intro: F C G

 

G F C G

It's a lonesome road and a hard way to live; But it's the only life that I know

G F C G

I meet some people a-travelin' around; But home's always the best place to go

 

<CHORUS>

F C G

And there's a lonesome feeling in my mind

F C G

A feeling that I can't leave behind

F C G Em

Carolina's where I'm at and I'll always hang my hat

F C G

Under those Blue Ridge Mountain skies

 

G F C G

Well I got me a woman back home; She gave me a baby too

G F C G

And she stands by my loving side; And does anything I ask her to

 

<CHORUS>

G F

There's an old man sittin' in a rocking chair

C G

Who's got the best beagle dog in the county I've been told

G F

But his shotgun a-done got too rusty

C G

That old Beagle dog he done grown a little too old

G F C G

As he stares up into heaven, I'm sure I know the reason why

G F C G

He's a-thinkin' about that Promised Land; In them Blue Ridge Mountain skies
