Carry Me Back to Old Virginny 
James A. Bland, arr. Ray Charles

Intro: G7

Carry me back   to old Virginny.
C E F F#oThere's where the cotton and corn and taters grow.
G/C A- D G That's where the birds warble sweet in the spring-time.
C E F F#o That's where this heart of mine, longs to go.
G/C A D G C Carry me back to old Virginny,
C E F F#oThere let me live till I wither and decay.
G/C A- D G Long by the old Dismal Swamp have I wandered,
C E F F#o That's where this life of mine will pass away.
G/C A D G C Mother and father have gone before me,
C E F F#oSoon we will meet on that bright and golden shore.
G/C A- D G There we'll be happy and free from all sorrow,
C E F F#o And there we'll meet, and part no more.
G/C A D G C ***Now I know the meaning of the phrase "Virginia is for lovers." I've fallen head over heels for the state.***
