Am C F Dm Dm/C
Hang around, Willie Boy,

Don't you raise the sails anymore.

--Play this from the 8th fret

Oh, to be home again,

Down in old Virginny,
F Dm F Bb
With my very best friend,

That big Rockin' Chair won't go nowhere.

==================================

Slow down, Willie Boy,
Your heart's gonna give right out on you
It's true, and I believe I know what we should do.
Turn the stern and point to shore,
The seven seas won't carry us no more.

Oh, to be home again,
Down in old Virginny,
With my very best friend,
They call him Ragtime Willie.
I can't wait to sniff that air,
Dip'n snuff, I won't have no care,
That big Rockin' Chair won't go nowhere.

Hear the sound, Willie Boy,
The Flyin' Dutchman's on the reef.
It's my belief
We've used up all our time,
This hill's to steep to climb,
And the days that remain ain't worth a dime.

Oh, to be home again,
Down in old Virginny,
With my very best friend,
They call him Ragtime Willie.
Would-a-been nice just t'see the folks,
listen once again to the stale jokes,
That big Rockin' Chair won't go nowhere.

I can hear something calling on me
[second voice concurrent with first]
And you know where I want to be
Oh Willie don't you hear that sound
[second voice as above]
Oh to be home again down in old Virginny
I just want to get my feet back on the ground
Oh to be home again down in old Virginny
[second voice as above]
I'd love to see my very best friend
They call him Rag-time Willie
[second voice as above]
I believe old rockin chair's got me
[second voice as above]
Oh to be home again
