Song Meaning
Verse 1
Far away upon a hill on a sunny mountain side
Many years ago we parted, my own true love and I
From the sunny mountain side
Verse 2
Oh she clung to me and trembled, when I told her we must part
And she said don't go my darling I know twill break my heart
When we two are far apart
Verse 3
Carry me back to old Virginia back to my clinch mountain home
Carry me back to old Virginia back to my old mountain home
Verse 4
My mother's old and feeble and my father's getting gray
Carry me back to old Virginia for its there I want to stay
Verse 5
Oh I held her in my arms leaned her head upon my breast
And I told her that I'd wed her when I come back from the west
To my old clinch mountain home
Verse 6
In my hand I hold a picture of the old home far away
And the picture of my sweetheart
I'm thinking of today
On the sunny mountain side
