    D
    About three miles from the Batelle yard 
    G
    From the reverse curve on down 
    D
    Not far south of the town depot 
    GBm
    Sullivan's shack was found 
    AD
    Back on the higher ground. 
    D
    You could see him every day 
    G
    Just walking down the line 
    D
    With his old brown sack across his back 
    GBm
    And his long hair down behind 
    AD
    Speaking his worried mind. 
    D
    cho: It's a long way to the delta 
    G
    From the North Georgia hills 
    D
    A tote sack full of ginseng 
    GG7
    Won't pay no travelling bills 
    CD
    Now, I'm too old to ride the rails 
    EmA
    Or thumb the road alone 
    DGD
    So I guess I'll never make it back to home 
    DGAD
    My muddy water Mississippi delta home. 
    D
    The winters here, they get too cold 
    G
    The damp it makes me ill 
    D
    Can't dig no roots in the mountain side 
    GBm
    With the ground froze hard and still 
    AD
    Gotta stay at the foot of the hill. 
    D
    But next summer, things turn right 
    G
    The companies will pay high 
    D
    I'll make enough money to pay my bills 
    GBm
    Bid these mountains goodbye 
    AD
    Then he said with a sigh: 
    {chorus}
