Nanci Griffith - Tecumseh Valley Lyrics

  • The name she gave was Caroline
  • Daughter of a miner
  • And her ways were free
  • It seemed to me
  • The sunshine walked beside her
  • She came to Spencer
  • Across the hill
  • She said he Pa had sent her
  • 'Cause the coal was low
  • And soon the snow
  • Would turn the skies to winter
  • She said she's come
  • To look for work
  • She was not seeking favors
  • And for a dime a day
  • And a place to stay
  • She'd turn those hands to labor
  • But the times were hard Lord
  • The jobs were few
  • All through Tecumseh Valley
  • But she asked around
  • And a job she found
  • Tending bar at Gypsy Sally's
  • She saved enough to get back home
  • When spring replaced the winter
  • But her dreams were denied
  • Her Pa had died
  • The word come down from Spencer
  • So she turned a whorin' out on the streets
  • With all the lust inside her
  • And it was many a man
  • Returned again
  • To lay himself beside her
  • They found her down beneath the stairs
  • That led to Gypsy Sally's
  • In her hand when she died
  • Was a note that cried
  • Fare thee well...Tecumseh Valley
  • Repeat first verse
