8-beat intro. with 2 lead-in notes on the word "Way".
Play 4 or 8-beats for each cell, your choice.
Way down in Col-um-bus Geor-gia,  Want to be back in Tenn-ess-ee.
Way down in Col-um-bus Stock-ade,  Friends all turned their back on me.
Go and leave me if you wish to,  Nev-er let it cross your mind.
If in your heart you love an-oth-er,  Leave me little dar-ling I don't mind.
Listen to Jim play "'Columbus Stockade" with the WineLand Banjo Band (youtube)
