It sure is cold here in Chicago
The wind can cut you like a knife
Another day, another dollar
What a way to spend a life

She was young and I was restless
Left my home in Ole' Virginia
And my Blue Ridge Mountain girl

And I can see her standing by the window
And there's nothing sadder in the world
Than to see those green eyes, all red from crying
On my Blue Ridge Mountain girl

In my hands I hold a letter
That says she made a pretty bride
And as I lay here in the darkness
She lays by another's side

I've got money in my pockets
Diamond rings that I wear
But I'd trade them all this minute
For the gold that's in her hair

And I can see her standing by the window
And there's nothing sadder in the world
Than to see those green eyes, all red from crying
Of my Blue Ridge Mountain girl

And I can see her standing by the window
And there's nothing sadder in the world
Than those green eyes, all red from crying
On my Blue Ridge Mountain girl
On my Blue Ridge Mountain girl
