Longing for Old Virginia
'Mid the 5 green fields of Virginia, dear I 1 met you
Where the 5 roses red and white around us 1 grew
When I 4 held you in my arms and gently 1 kissed you
The 5 robins sang the sweetest song we knew...
I am 1 longing for old Virginia, for old Vir- 4 ginia and 1 you
And I'm 5 hoping the soul with- 1 in you is 5 longing for me too
To Vir- 1 ginia, just like the ivy, my 4 heart clings ever 1 true
And I 4 reckon in the spring I'll 1 bring a little ring
To old Vir- 5 ginia and 1 you
Though tonight I'm far from you and old Virginia
I still love you as I did that day in June
And when springtime comes again to old Virginia
I'll build a little cottage just for two...
