Robo Lyr Req: West Virginia (Hazel Dickens) (18) RE: Lyr Req: West Virginia you are my home 17 Apr 01


Drat . . . one more time:

Chorus:

West Virginia, oh my home.

West Virginia, where I belong.

In the dead of the night, in the still and the quiet I slip away like a bird in flight

Back to those hills, the place that I call home.

It's been years now since I left there

And this city life's about got the best of me.

I can't remember why I left so free what I wanted to do, what I wanted to see,

But I can sure remember where I come from.

Repeat Chorus

Instr verse

Well I paid the price for the leavin'

And this life I have is not one I thought I'd find.

Just let me live, love, let my cry, but when I go just let me die

Among the friends who'll remember when I'm gone.

Repeat Chorus

Bridge:

Home, home, home. I can see it so clear in my mind.

Home, home, home. I can almost smell the honeysuckle vines.

In the dead of the night, in the still and the quiet I slip away like a bird in flight

Back to those hills, the place that I call home.
