Swannanoa Tunnel

Ashville Junction, Swannanoa tunnel
All caved in, babe, all caved in.

I'm goin' back to Swannanoa tunnel
That's my home, babe, that's my home.

When you hear that hoot owl squallin'
Somebody's dyin', babe, somebody's dyin'.

When you hear that pistol growl, babe
Another man's gone, another man's gone.

If I could gamble like Tom Dooley
I'd leave my home, honey, I'd leave my home.

Recorded by Bascom Lamar Lunceford, Erik Darling
