East Virginia Blues

Gob Iron

 E
I was born in east Virginia
 AE
North Carolina I did go
 AE
Where I spied a fair young maiden
 BE
And her name I did not know

 E
I don't want greenback dollars
 AE
I don't want no silver chains
 AE
All I want is your love darlin'
 BE
Won't you take me back again

Interlude
 EAEAEBE
 E
Last night I saw you walkin'
 AE
With another by yourside
 AE
And I thought I heard you tell him
 BE
That soon you'll be his bride

Chorus
Interlude

 E
Her hair was dark in color
 AE
Her cheeks were rosy red
 AE
On her breast she wore white linen
 BE
Where I longed to lay my head

Chorus
Interlude

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

Chorus
Interlude
End on E
