My Old Virginia Home

exibições 35

was on one winter day, from my home I went away
Far away from friends and home I longed to roam
But tonight I'm lone and sad, just a little homesick lad
And I'm longing from my old Virginia home

I'm a lad from old Virginia
Bravely knocking my way back home
To that cabin home in the mountain
Never more let me roam

I'm a lad from old Virginia
And I'm coming, coming home
There I'll settle down forever
In my old Virginia home

Since I left that little shack, how my mind has wandered back
How mother often prayed for her lad
But from her I went away, and I know I'll dearly pay
So I'm coming back to mother and my dad

I'm a lad from old Virginia
Bravely knocking my way back home
To that cabin home in the mountain
Never more let me roam

I'm a lad from old Virginia
And I'm coming, coming home
There I'll settle down forever
In my old Virginia home
