West Virginia, oh my home.
West Virginia, where I belong.
In the dead of the night, in the still and the quiet I slip away like a bird
D A D
Back to those hills, the place that I call home.
It's been years now since I left there
And this city life's about got the best of me.
I can't remember why I left so free what I wanted to do, what I wanted to see,
But I can sure remember where I come from.
Well I paid the price for the leavin'
And this life I have is not one I thought I'd find.
Just let me live, love, let my cry, but when I go just let me die
Among the friends who'll remember when I'm gone.
G A D A
Home, home, home. I can see it so clear in my mind.
G A D
Home, home, home. I can almost smell the honeysuckle vines.
[Repeat last two lines of chorus.]
