East Virginia Lyrics - George Hamilton Iv

Review The Song (1)



I was born in East Virginia North Carolina I did go
There I met the fairest maiden her name and age I did not know

Her hair it was a light brown color her lips they were red ruby's red
On her breast she wore white lilie there I longed to lay my head
I was born in East Virginia...

I'd rather be in some dark holler where the sun don't never shine
Than to know she loved another and to know she'd never be mine
I was born in East Virginia...
Her name and age I did not know

East Virginia lyrics | Reviewer: Nancy Slayton | 4/24/2007

(This is what I grew up singing in Missouri.)

1. I don't want you gree-back dollar,
I don't want you silver chain.
All I want is your love, sweet darlin',
Won't you take me back again.
2. I was born in East Virginia,
North Carolina I did go.
There I met a fair young maiden,
And her name I did not know.
3. Well her hair was dark of color,
Cheeks, they were a rosy red.
On her breast she wore white lillies,
Where I long to lay my head.
4. At my heart you are my darlin',
At my door you're welcome in.
At my gate, I'll always meet you,
You're the girl I tried to win.
5. I'd rather be in some dark holler,
Where the sun would never shine.
Than to see you with another,
When you promised to be mine.

Repeat 1.
