My Virginia rose is blooming
She's waiting there for me
In the hills of old Virginia
That's where I long to be

She wears a winning' smile
And her loving eyes are blue
She's won my heart forever
For she's the girl that's true

Beneath the scarlet maple
By the twinkling little spring
That's where I bid her promise
And gave to her the ring

Springtime is approaching'
The birds and doves are here
They are singing so sweetly
But none can sing like her

It's love that calls me to you
My rose that never fades
Or loses its crimson leaves of love
Love that's perfect made

I long to see my darlin'
there in the mist of dew
With the diamond dewdrops all Â?round her
She'll be a queen in the view

She's a wild rose in the forest
A fairy in a dream
My darlings in Virginia
her age is just sixteen

I'm a long, long ways from my darlin'
Just a little too far to be
My Virginia rose is blooming
She's waiting there for me
