Carry Me Back to Old Virginny 
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               A-          D              G   
That's where the birds warble sweet in the spring-time.
C                 E     F                 F#o 
That's where this heart of mine, longs to go.
G/C                A        D     G        C

Carry me back   to old Virginny,
C        E    F         F#o
There let me live till I wither and decay.
G/C          A-            D            G   
Long by the old Dismal Swamp have I wandered,
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          A-            D                G   
There we'll be happy   and free from all sorrow,
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.***
