West Virginia My Home

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 fight
Back to those hills, the place that I call home.
It’s been years now since I left there
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.
Well I paid the price for the leavin’
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.
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 ....
Home, home, home
