Old Crow Medicine Show – Levi Lyrics

Born up on the Blue Ridge
At the Carolina line
Baptised on the banks of the New River
Brought up on the bluegrass
And the clear moonshine
Yeah, tough as iron but a heart as soft as leather
Leevi

Like a fire on the mountain
Runnin’ wild in those days
Playin’ Knights of the Gold Horseshoe and Indian raids
Huntin’ jackvine in the summertime
And in the fall it was ginseng
Yeah, a country boy don’t belong in the desert anyway
Leevi
Lord, Lord, Lord they shot him down
Ten thousand miles from a Southern town
Oooooooh, Leevi

From Galax to Bagdhad
On a camouflaged airplane
Where it was a hundred-nineteen degrees for twenty days straight
Shoved off in the sandbox
In a rollin’ Hum-Vee
Cryin’ Daddy, Daddy this don’t look like Virginia to me
Leevi
Lord, Lord, Lord they shot him down
Ten thousand miles from a Southern town
Oooooooh, Leevi

In the market square all the bells
Were ringin’ loud to fill the air
Leevi gazed his eyes out through the rocket glare
Through the desert and the ocean
To the furthest fields of home
And when the bullets pierced his body, he was already gone
Leevi
Lord, Lord, Lord they shot him down
Ten thousand miles from a Southern town
Oooooooh, Leevi

Oooooooh, Leevi
Lord, Lord, Lord they shot him down
Ten thousand miles from a Southern town
Oooooooh, Leevi
Oooooooh, Lord, Lord, Leevi
Oooooooh, Lord, Leevi
