 D                            Bm7
Bein` born in-- blocks of--- buildings,  -oe
            C     G          D
with a sub~~~~~~  way lul-la-bye 
When I dreamed of-- Ap-pal-a-chia  
        C        G                 D
it was dreams~~~~~~~ That  had to die 
             Bm7   Em7          D
Coal trains wail~~~in` banjos frailing 
          Bm7   Em7              D
Sounds es-cap~~~in` through the night 
         G/D     G              D
But the Face~~~~~~` of Ap -  pa-la-chia 
                      C      G            D
was there--  in that grey~~~~~ apartment life 
D                      Bm7. 
I would fashion  I`d imagine 
                 C    G           D
Some-where steeped~~~~~ in water-falls
Wild birds sing to a five string 
          C      G                D
Bouncin` mus~~~~~ic off mountain walls 
             Bm7     Em7         D
Coal trains wail~~~~~in` banjos frailing
          Bm7      Em7              D
Sounds escape~~~~~~in` through the door
         G/D      G          D 
But the Face~~~~~~~~ Of Appalachia was there
         C        G     
she was chang~~~~~in` that`s for 
 D                   C      G               D      
sure~~~~~ she was chang~~~~in`  that`s for sure. 
D                         Bm7 
Grand pa made me quite a promise
          C    G            D 
For the day~~~~~ I came of age
He said we`d walk through Appalachia 
           C        G                 D
Northern Geor~~~~~~gia all through to Maine 
           Bm7   Em7     D
Dreadfull sor~~~~ry my beloved
        Bm7      Em7          D
Such a prom~~~~~~ise couldn`t keep
        G/D     G         D        
All my dreams~~~~~ of Appalachia
         C     G           D
Just an old~~~~~~ mans memories
         C     G           D 
Just an old~~~~~~ mans memories
