Carry Me Back to Old Virginny  Ray Charles

James A. Bland, arr. Ray Charles
Intro: G7
Carry me back to old Virginny.
C E F F#o
There's where the cotton and corn and taters grow.
[G/C]That's where the b[A-]irds warble [D]sweet in the sp[G]ring-time.
C E F F#o
That's where this heart of mine, longs to go.
[G/C]( Tab from: http://[A]www.guita[D]rtabs.[G]cc/tabs/r[C]/ray_charles/carry_me_back_to_old_virginny_crd.html )
Carry me back to old Virginny,
C E F F#o
There let me live till I wither and decay.
[G/C]Long by the o[A-]ld Dismal Swam[D]p have I wand[G]ered,
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#o
Soon we will meet on that bright and golden shore.
[G/C]There we'll b[A-]e happy and [D]free from all sor[G]row,
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.***
