Intro G 

verse 1 
                        Cadd9       G   Cadd9 
Well the name she gave was Caroline 
              G 
Daughter of a miner 
        Cadd9 
And her ways were free 
        G  D/F#  Em7 
And it seemed to me 
         Dsus2           Cadd9   G 
That sunshine walked beside her 

verse 2 
G 
She come from Spencer 
Cadd9    G 
Across the hill 
Cadd9                 G 
She said her pa had sent her 
           Cadd9 
'cause the coal was low 
      G D/F# Em7 
And soon the snow 
       Dsus2           Cadd9   G 
Would turn the sky to winter 

verse 3 
G 
She said she'd come 
Cadd9        G      Cadd9 
To look for work 
                     G 
She was not seeking favors 
          Cadd9 
And for a dime a day 
      G  D/F#  Em7 
And a place to stay 
      Dsus2               Cadd9   G 
She'd turn those hands to labor 

verse 4 
G 
But the times were hard 
Cadd9             G    Cadd9 
And the jobs were few 
                     G 
All through Tecumseh Valley 
       Cadd9 
So she asked around 
        G  D/F#  Em7 
'till a job she found 
        Dsus2        Cadd9    G 
Tending bar at Gypsy Sally's 

Verse 5 
G                Cadd9         G 
She saved enough to get back home 
Cadd9                  G 
Spring replaced the winter 
        Cadd9 
But her dreams were denied 
    G D/F#  Em7 
Her pa had died 
Dsus2               Cadd9   G 
Word come down from Spencer 

Verse 6 
G                       Cadd9      G      Cadd9 
So she took to walkin' out on the road 
                  G 
With all the hate inside her 
           Cadd9 
And it was many a man 
    G D/F# Em7 
Returned again 
   Dsus2         Cadd9     G 
To lay himself beside her 

Verse 7 
G                         Cadd9        G      Cadd9 
Well they found her down beneath the stairs 
                  G 
That led to Gypsy Sally's 
       Cadd9 
In her hand when she died 
       G  D/F#  Em7 
Was a note that cried 
          Dsus2 
Fare thee well 
         Cadd9   G 
Tecumseh Valley 

Verse 8 
G                      Cadd9    G     Cadd9 
Well the name she gave was Caroline 
               G 
Daughter of a miner 
        Cadd9 
And her ways were free 
        G  D/F#  Em7 
And it seemed to me 
        Dsus2         Cadd9      G 
The sunshine walked beside her
