BLUE RIDGE MOUNTAIN BLUES - UKE CHORDS


A E
  When I was young and in my prime
  A
I left my home in caroline
  E
Now all I do is sit and cry
  A
For all the folks i've left behind

Chorus
  A E
  I've got the blue ridge mountain blues
  A
I gonna stand right here and sing

My mule is packed for travel,
  D
and I'm scratching gravel
  A E A
for the blue ridge far away

Verse 2
I see a window with a light
And I see two heads snowy white
I seem to hear them both recite
Where is our wanderin' boy tonight

Chorus 2
I've got the blue ridge mountain blues
I gonna see my old dog Tre
I'm gonna hunt the possum
Where the corn tops bloosom
On the blue ridge far away

Verse 3
I'm gonna stay right by my ma
And i'm gonna do right by my pa
I'm gonna stay by my front door
With no work or worry anymore

Chorus 3
I've got the blue ridge mountain blues
Im gonna stand right here and say
Cause everyday i'm counting till
I reach those mounatins
On the blue ridge far away
