​East Virginia

This song is by The Brothers Four and appears on the album The Brothers Four (1960).

Do do do do do
Do do do do do
Do do do do do.

I was born in east Virginia
North Carolina I did go
There I loved a fair young maiden
Whose age and name I did not know.

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

I don't want those greenback dollars
I don't want no golden chain
In this world there is no treasure
That can bring her back, again.

Take me to that borrowed fortune
And carve my name upon a stone
Tell the world how much I love her
And how I died for love alone.

I was born in east Virginia
North Carolina I did go
There I loved a fair young maiden
Whose age and name I did not know.

Do do do do do
Do do do do do
Do do do do do...
