East Virginia Blues

This song is by Clarence Ashley and Gwen Foster.

I was born in East Virginia
North Carolina I did go
There I met a fair young maiden
Name and age I did not know

Oh her hair was dark and curly
And her cheeks were rosy red
On her breast she wore a lilly
Where I longed to lay my head

I don't want your green back dollar
I don't want your watch and chain
All I want is you my darling
Say you'll take me back again

In my heart you are my darlin'
At my door you're welcome in
At my gate I'll always greet you
For you're the one I tried to win

I'd rather be in some dark holler
Where the sun refused to shine
Than to see you with another
And to know you won't be mine
