Born upon the blue ridge, at the Carolina line 
Baptized on the banks of the new river 
Brought upon blue grass and clear moon shine 
And tough as iron but a heart soft as leather 

Levi, lord, lord, lord, they shot him down 
Ten thousand miles from a southern town 
Oh, Levi

Like a fire on a mountain, running wild with no states 
Playing nights on the glory horse shoe 
And Indian raids 
Now it's parachutes and combat boots 
They camouflaged they planes 
And a country boy who don't belong 
In the desert anyways 

Levi, lord, lord, lord, they shot him down 
Ten thousand miles from a southern town 
Oh, Levi

Well the sandbox sure gets lonesome 
And it's a hundred and nine degrees 
Singing carry my back to Virginia 
Lord I'm down here on my knees 
In a market skrell while the bells were ringing 
Loud to fill the air 
Levi gazed his eyes out, to the rocket player 
Be on the desert and the ocean 
To the farthest fields on home 
And when the bullets pierced his body 
He was already gone 

Levi, lord, lord, lord, they shot him down 
Ten thousand miles from a southern town 
Oh, Levi, lord, lord, lord, they shot him down 
Oh, Levi, oh Levi.
