Ginseng Sullivan Recorded by Tony Rice Written by Norman Blake
C About three miles from the Battelle yard F From the reverse curve on down C Not far south of the town depot Am Em Sullivan's shack was found G7 C Back on the higher ground
You could see him every day F Walking down the line C With an old brown sack across his back Am Em And his long hair down behind G7 C Speaking his worried mind
It's a long way to the delta F From the North Georgia hills C A tote sack full of ginseng F Won't pay no travelling bills A# C Now I'm too old to ride the rails Dm G7 Or thumb the road alone C F C So I guess I'll never make it back to home F G7 C My muddy water Mississippi delta home
The winters here they get too cold F The damp it makes me ill C Can't dig no roots in the mountain side Am Em With the ground froze hard and still G7 C Gotta stay at the foot of the hill
But next summer when things turn right F The companies will pay high C I'll make enough money to pay my bills Am Em And bid these mountains goodbye G7 C Then he said with a sigh
