LYRIC

East Virginia

I was born and raised in east Virginia
North Carolina I did roam
And there I met the fairest maid
Her name and age, I do not know
Her hair, it was of a light brown color
And her cheeks of a ruby red
On her breast she wore white lilies
Where I longed to lay my head
I’d rather be in some dark holler
Where the sun don’t ever shine
Then to see her wed some other
And to know that she’d never be mine
I was born and raised in east Virginia
North Carolina I did roam
And there I met the fairest maid
Her name and age, I do not know
