From the 2006 Album Gob Iron: Death Songs for the Living

The song is in 3/4 time with heavy use of slide guitar.  It's fun to play by yourself on an acoustic, too.

I was [E]born in east Virginia
North [A]Carolina I did [E]go
Where I [A]spied a fair young [E]maiden
And her [B]name I did not [E]know

I don't [E]want greenback dollars
I don't [A]want no silver [E]chains
All I [A]want is your love [E]darlin'
Won't you [B]take me back [E]again

Interlude
E A E A E B E

Last [E]night I saw you walkin'
With ano[A]ther by your[E]side
And I [A]thought I heard you [E]tell him
That [B]soon you'll be his [E]bride

Chorus
Interlude

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

Chorus
Interlude

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

Chorus
Interlude
End on E
