    Cumberland Gap - Dave Rawlings

    Capo 5 No Capo   Intro Am C x2

     

    Am Cumberland Gap, is the C devil of a gap x2

    Am C x2

    Am Kiss me mama, C kiss your boy

    Am Bless me well and G lucky

    For I Am won't be back 'til C I return

    I'm G going to old Kentucky

    Am Cumberland Gap, is the C devil of a gap

    Am That's what the scouts all G tell ya

    Am Sure enough it'll C make you tough

    G If it doesn't kill ya, kill ya

    Kentucky she's a waitin' on the other Am side

    C G Give you the fever

    Put the daylight in your D eye D

     

    Am Brother John's alCready gone

    With a Am full blood Cherokee G maiden

    He Am made the trip in the C blizzard's grip

    I'd G rather wrestle Satan

    Am Cumberland Gap, C devil of a gap

    Am Oh, the snow kept G coming

    Am Picked her up C upon his back

    My G god he loved that woman G

    Am  C  G   l G  D  D

    Verse instrumental

    Am Daniel stood on the C pinnacle rock

    Looking Am up and down the G mountain

    Am Took his trusty C old flintlock

    G Daniel started shouting, shouting

    Kentucky she's a waitin' on the other Am side

    C G Give you the fever

    Put the daylight in your D eye D

     

    Am Cumberland Gap, is the C devil of a gap x4 Am

    Good job Jason - I think "full blood Cherokee maiden" and maybe "well and lucky". What do you say?
