    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 from Spencer
    Across the hill
    She said her Pa had sent her
    'Cause the coal was low
    And soon the snow
    Would turn the skies to winter

    She said she'd come
    To look for work
    She was not seeking favours
    And for a dime a day
    And a place to stay
    She'd turn those hands to labour

    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 to 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)
