Tragic Romance
recorded by Stonewall Jackson
written by Louis M. Jones, Wiley Morris, Zake Morris
C                           F
Nestled in the heart of the Tennessee Hills
G7                                               C
Among the peaceful pines midst the rocks and the rills
There stands my old home place of long long ago
   G7                                     C
It brings back fond memory of one I loved so
I courted that maiden so sweet and so fair
G7                                         C
With heavenly eyes and with chestnut brown hair
She said that she loved me and always would be mine
    G7                            C
But I went away leaving her there behind
I'll tell you the reason that I left her there
G7                                         C
To roam this old world with its sorrow and care
I saw her one night in the arms of a man
G7                                C
Hugging and kissing as two lovers can
While dining one night in a far off country town
  G7                                       C
A stranger walked in and he chanced to sit down
While speaking of loved ones I happened to find
G7                                           C
He was the brother of that old sweetheart of mine
When he heard my story to me then he said
G7                                    C
The one you love has a long time been dead
Oh I was the one who you saw that fatal night
G7                                      C
All wrapped in the arms of my sister so tight
She loved you so dearly but you broke her heart
G7                                      C
To stranger from her ever more you must part
