Carry Me Back To Old Virginny

Intro: G7 

Carry me back   to old Virginny. 
C        E    F         F#o 
There's where the cotton and corn and taters grow. 
G/C               A-          D              G    
That's where the birds warble sweet in the spring-time. 
C                 E     F                 F#o  
That's where this heart of mine, longs to go. 
G/C                A        D     G        C 

Carry me back   to old Virginny, 
C        E    F         F#o 
There let me live till I wither and decay. 
G/C          A-            D            G    
Long by the old Dismal Swamp have I wandered, 
C           E     F                 F#o  
That's where this life of mine will pass away. 
G/C      A        D       G         C 

Mother and father   have gone before me, 
C          E      F             F#o 
Soon we will meet on that bright and golden shore. 
G/C          A-            D                G    
There we'll be happy   and free from all sorrow, 
C              E     F                   F#o  
And there we'll meet, and part no more. 
G/C                A      D    G  C 

***Now I know the meaning of the phrase "Virginia is for lovers." I've fallen head  
over heels for the state.***
