Mid The Green Fields Of Virginia

 

Mid the green fields of Virginia

In the veil of Shanadoah

There's an ivy covered homestead that I love

With it's white old fashioned chimney

And it's simple homelike hours

Tis the home of my dear parents now above

 

There's a peaceful cottage there

A happy home so dear

My heart is longing for them day by day

Where I spent life's golden hours

In the veil of Shanadoah

Mid the green fields for Virginia far away

Mid the green fields of Virginia

Stands an old mill by the stream

I once wondered to that spot to sing and play

And how often I would throw the stone

Into the pebbling brook

I would dream someday it'd carry me away
