 THE LOWLANDS   Nitty Grity Dirt Band 
                  (featuring Jaime Hanna and Jonathan McEuen)

Intro: Vamp on C#m using suggested finger picking pattern above

      C#m                                               E
I'm headed for the lowlands would you please direct my way
      B                                             C#m 
The train is leaving shortly there's no time for de-lay
     C#m                                          E   
She told me shd'd be waiting I'm not so sure she is
    B                                                   C#m 
I heard that there's another man who claims that she is his

CHORUS:
       C#m             B                    C#m
The lowlands were my home when I was but a child
                   B                          C#m  
they will be my deathbed when I've passed my time


     C#m                                        E
I remember one summer day the clouds began to build
      B                                              C#m  
We gathered the cattle that had scattered cross the fields
          C#m                                   E 
Well it started to rain and continued several days
                 B                               C#m  
The river over-flowed and the crops all went to waste

to chorus
     C#m                                                E  
You know that I'm no failure through my victories are few
       B                                        C#m                                        
I'm trying my best but there's too much here to do
      C#m                                         E
That girl I love once told me I made her feel se-cure
       B                                                C#m
It's hard to think I've been replaced. Nothing does en-dure.

to chorus 
ENDING CHORDS:  C#m E B C#m     C#m E B C#m
