Recorded in 1935 by the original Carter Family

[Intro]
G  

[Verse 1]
     G 
Far away on a hill   to a sunny mountain side
     C                                       G
Many years ago we parted, my little Ruth and I 
         D7             G
From the sunny mountain side

[Verse 2] 
    G
She clung to me and trembled, when I told her we must part
    C                                            G
She said don't go my darling it almost breaks my heart
            D7           G
To think of you so far apart

[Chorus]
         C              G             D7                 G
Carry me back to old Virginia back to my Clinch mountain home
         C              G             D7              G
Carry me back to old Virginia back to my old mountain home

[Instrumental]
G   C  G D7  G 

[Verse 3]
  G
I fold my arms around her leaned her head upon my breast
  C                                                  G
I told her I would wed her when I came back from the west
      D7                  G
At my old Clinch mountain home

[Verse 4]
   G
In my hand I hold a picture of the old home far away 
       C                                         G
In the other one my sweetheart I'm thinking of today
       D7             G
On the sunny mountain side

[Chorus]
         C              G             D7                 G
Carry me back to old Virginia back to my Clinch mountain home
         C              G             D7              G
Carry me back to old Virginia back to my old mountain home

[Instrumental] 
G   C   G   D7  G 

[Verse 5]
   G
My mother's old and feeble my father's getting gray
    C                                      G
I'm going back to Virginia and I expect to stay
      D7                  G
At my old Clinch mountain home

[Chorus]
         C              G             D7                 G
Carry me back to old Virginia back to my Clinch mountain home
         C              G             D7              G
Carry me back to old Virginia back to my old mountain home
