​West Virginia

This song is by The Elves and appears on the single Amber Velvet (1970).

Needed a vacation from New York City, oh West Virginia
Met a girl there and she looked so pretty, oh West Virginia
Rockabilly woman with eyes like diamonds
Said I'd have the nerve if she could take the time and educate me

Hey Diana are you leaving town, sit down
We'll talk it out and have a smoke yeah
You mean you can't take a joke yeah
I should have known it
I guess I've blown it

Never should have parted from the great white way, hey, oh West Virginia
Woman on my mind every night and day, hey, oh West Virginia
Went and said some things that I shouldn't have said now
Jumped into a river that was over my head and how she wants a word with me

Hey Diana are you leaving town, sit down
We'll talk it out and have a smoke yeah
You mean you can't take a joke yeah
I should have known it
Looks like I've blown it

Sometimes little problems come along

Hey Diana are you leaving town, sit down
We'll talk it out and have a smoke yeah
You mean you can't take a joke yeah
I should have known it
I guess I've blown it

I should have known it
I guess I've blown it
I've blown it
I should have known it
It's like I've blown it
I guess I've blown it
