The Brothers Four – East Virginia lyrics

Do do do do do
Do do do do do
Do do do do do.

I was born in east Virginia
North Carolina I did go
There I loved a fair young maiden
Whose age and name I did not know.

Oh, her hair was dark and curly
And her cheeks were rosey red
On her breast she wore a liliy
Where I longed to lay my head.

I don't want those greenback dollars
I don't want no golden chain
In this world there is no treasure
That can bring her back, again.

Take me to that marble orchard
And carve my name upon a stone
Tell the world how much I love her
And how I died for love alone.

I was born in east Virginia
North Carolina I did go
There I loved a fair young maiden
Whose age and name I did not know.

Do do do do do
Do do do do do
Do do do do do...
