Don't Forget This Song

G - C - G     - C - G - D - G


[G]My home's in old Virginia [C]among the lovely [G]hills

The [C]memory of my [G]birthplace lies in my [D]bosom [G]still


I did not like my fireside I did not like my home

I have a mind for rambling so far away from home


It was on one moonlight evening the stars were shinning bright

And with an ugly dagger I made the spirits fly

+ G - C - G     - C - G - D - G

Twas then the sobber struck me as plain as you can see

I'm doomed I'm ruined forever throughout eternity


I courted a fair young lady her name I will not tell

Oh why should I disgrace her when I am doomed for hell


But now upon my scaffold my time's not very long

You may forget the singer but don't forget this song


+ G - C - G     - C - G - D - G
