Ginseng Sullivan
(Norman Blake)

About three miles from the Batelle yard
From the reverse curve on down
Not far south of the town depot
G                    Bm
Sullivan's shack was found
A                  D
Back on the higher ground.

You could see him every day
Just walking down the line
With his old brown sack across his back
        G                Bm
And his long hair down behind
A                    D
Speaking his worried mind.

cho: It's a long way to the delta
     From the North Georgia hills
     A tote sack full of ginseng
                             G  G7
     Won't pay no travelling bills
          C              D
     Now, I'm too old to ride the rails
        Em             A
     Or thumb the road alone
          D                G               D
     So I guess I'll never make it back to home
     D              G           A     D
     My muddy water Mississippi delta home.

The winters here, they get too cold
The damp it makes me ill
Can't dig no roots in the mountain side
         G                     Bm
With the ground froze hard and still
      A                       D
Gotta stay at the foot of the hill.
But next summer, things turn right
The companies will pay high
I'll make enough money to pay my bills
G                       Bm
Bid these mountains goodbye
A                   D
Then he said with a sigh:


See ya

"And if one more person says to me, they can't stand the "twang," I think
 I just might gingerly poke 'em in the eye. This is not like eating okra."
