The word itself comes straight from hell
Chickamauga say it well
Chattanooga Tennessee
an infernal place..please leave me be

Sometimes I shake in the middle of the night
and my wife will hold me oh so tight
until the morning crawls around
this quiet little mining town

She'll ask about the things I'd seen
the friends I lost at age nineteen
and what I'd done with my own hands
that only a soldier understands

Chickamauga
Chickamauga
why won't you go away
why won't you go away
why won't you go away
from here

You'd think that time is all it takes
but time grows old and te memories ache
and wounds that the naked eye can't see
fester and push love away from me

My children are grown and have gone their way
years and years of nothing to say
they come home like ghosts and float right past
myself, my chair, and my whiskey glass

It was 2 days in 1863
that took the good from inside of me
and turned the world into a fearsome place
that the hand of god could not erase

Chickamauga
Chickamauga
why won't you go away
why won't you go away
why won't you go away
from here
