      A               A
I was born in East Virginia
          D          A
North Carolina I did go
        D            A
There I met a pretty maiden
            E              A
Her age and name I did not know


                 A                   A
   Well, I don't want your greenback dollar
               D                   A
   And I don't want your watch and chain
         D                   A
   All I want is your heart, darling
             E             A
   Won't you take me back again


             A                A
Her hair was long and dark of color
        D                A
And her cheeks were rosy red
       D                     A
On her breast she wore white linnen
               E              A
That's where I long to lay my head


                  A                   A
   Honey, I don't want your greenback dollar
               D                   A
   And I don't want your watch and chain
         D                   A
   All I want is your heart, darling
             E             A     A
   Won't you take me back again


           A               A
Baby, last night I saw you walking
      D              A
With another by your side
      D                   A
And I thought I heard you tell him
         E                 A
That you soon would be his bride


               A               A
And I'd rather be in some dark hollow
          D              A
Where the sun don't ever shine
        D             A
Than to see you with another
       E                 A
And to know you won't be mine


               A                   A
   And I don't want your greenback dollar
                D                   A
   Hey, I don't want your watch and chain
         D                   A
   All I want is your heart, darling
             E             A
   Won't you take me back again
                  E             A
   Hey, won't you take me back again
