My Old Virginia Home


It 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 for my old Virginia home


I'm a lad from old Virginia bravely knocking my way back home

To that cabin home in the mountains 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 astray and I know I've dearly paid

So I'm coming back to mother and my dad
