Cisco Houston - East Virginia lyrics

I don't want your greenback dollar
I don't want your silver chain
All I want is your love darlin
Won't you take me back again?

Well I was born in East Virginia
North Carolina I did go
Where I spied a fair young lady
And her name I do not know

But her hair was dark in color
And her cheeks were rosy red
'pon her breast she wore white lillies
Where I longed to lay my head

At my heart you are my darlin'
At my door you're welcome in
At my gate I'll always meet you
You're the girl I tried to win

I'd rather be in some dark holler
Where the sun refused to shine
Than to see you with another
When you promised to be mine

I don't want your greenback dollar
I don't want your silver chain
All I want is your love darlin'
Won't you take me back again?
