East Virginia Blues
A. P. Carter

I was born in East Virginia,
North Carolina I did go,
There I met a fair young maiden,
But her name I did not know.

Oh her hair was dark and curly,
And her lips were ruby red,
On her breast she wore a lilly,
Where I longed to lay my head.

I don’t want your greenback dollar,
I don’t want your watch and chain,
All I want isV your heart, darling,
Say you’ll take me back again.

I’ll go back to East Virginia,
North Carolina ain’t my home,
I’ll go back to East Virginia,
Leave those North Carolinans alone
