This is Carry Me Back To Virginia by Old Crow Medicine Show.
This song is very repetitive and only uses 3 chords, but it is fun and lively.
Enjoy!

Well...
C                                   F 
I come from the valley, I'm a rebel boy,
C                        G
Born on the banks of the Shenandoah.
C                    F
In '61 I went to the war
C          G      C
To win one for Virginia!


      C                                      F
Yeah, my brother went first then they called me, too.
C                            G
I was green as clover in the morning dew,
C                                          F
So I marched to the drum and I sang to the tune:
C        G          C
Carry me back to Virginia!


G                   C
Fire in the cannon, water in the well,
F                                 G 
Raced through the valley with a rebel yell. 
G                             C                    F             G
I learned right quick how to march like hell and affix that bayonet. 



C                  F 
Won't ya' carry me back? 
C                  F
Won't ya' carry me back?
C        G       C 
Carry me back to Virginia!


       C                                 F  
With a sword and a saddle, powder in the gun,
C                           G
We thought for a minute our fight was done.
C                                 F
So they lined us up to the metals arm,
C               G        C
And hammered us into the quicksand.


C                                          F
Then they burned that valley in a blaze of fire,
C                                G
Cut through the lands like a red hot iron.
C                                        F
'Til the men took cover where the horses piled,
C                G             C
Then we shivered and then hold against them.


G                         C
But the war raged on like flames of hell,
F                                 G
We dug through the pockets of the ones who fell,
G                               C
Dressed in rags and we ate that grass
F                          G
When they cut off our legs we cried!


C                F
Wont ya carry me back?
C                F
Wont ya carry me back?
C        G       C
Carry me back to Virginia!
C                F
Wont ya carry me back?
C                F
Wont ya carry me back?
C        G       C
Carry me back to Virginia.


C                                        F
And they died in the valley, died in the swamp,
C                                   G
On the banks of the river where the whitetail jumped.
C                                F
Died in the ditches, died in the fields,
C                             G
In the belly of a wagon for a womans to heal,
C                               F
Died in the war, starved in the camps.
C                          G
Locked in the prisons of a meaner man.
C                                 F
Spilled our blood in the fight to defend
C               G         C
And to bury the tome of a-dixieland!

  
G                C
Down in Alabama, down in Caroline,
F                           G
Way down in Gerogie, on the Tennessee line.
G                             C
We fought for the rebels, and Robert E. Lee,
F                         G
Now we want to go home to Virginia.
F                         G
Say we want to go home to Virginia!


C                F
Wont ya carry me back?
C                F
Wont ya carry me back?
C        G       C
Carry me back to Virginia.
C                F
Wont ya carry me back?
C                F
Wont ya carry me back?
C          G         C
I wanna be buried in Virginia!
