Swannanoa Tunnel

Swannanoa Tunnel

Asheville junction, Swannanoa tunnel All caved in, baby, all caved in. I’m goin’ back to that Swannanoa tunnel That’s my home, baby, that’s my home. When you hear that watch dog howling Somebody round, baby, somebody round. When you hear that hoot owl squalling Somebody dying, baby, somebody dying. Last December, I remember The wind blowed cold, baby, the wind blowed cold. The hammer falling from my shoulder All day long, baby, all day long. Ain’t no hammer in this mountain Out rings mine, baby, out rings mine. This old hammer, it rings like silver it shines like gold, baby, it shines like gold. Take this hammer and throw it in the river It rings right on, baby, it shines right on. I’m goin back to that Swannanoa Tunnel That’s my home, baby, that’s my home. Instruction on how to play this song can be found in Wayne Erbsen’s book: Clawhammer Banjo for the Complete Ignoramus
