East Virginia Blues Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I was born in East Virginia
North Carolina I did go
There I met the fairest maiden
Her name and age I did not know
Verse 2
I don't want the greenback dollar
I don't want the big silver chain
All I want is your love darling
Won't you please come back again
Verse 3
Last night I seen you walking
With another by your side
And I thought I heard you tell him
That soon you'd be his bride
Verse 4
I don't want the greenback dollar
I don't want the big gold chain
All I want is your love darling
Won't you please come back again
Verse 5
Well her hair was dark in color
And her cheeks were rosy red
On her breast she wore a white lily
Where I longed to lay my head
Verse 6
I don't want the greenback dollar
I don't want the big gold chain
All I want is your love darling
Won't you please come back again
Verse 7
I rather be in some dark hollow (note 2)
Where the sun refused to shine
Than to see you with another
When you promised to be mine
