    I was born in East Virginia
    North Carolina I did go
    There I met a fair, young maiden
    And her name, I did not know

    On her hair was dark and curly
    Cheeks were roses red
    Oh, her breast she wore my clear leaf
    Where I longer to lay my head

    I don't want your greenback dollar
    I don't want your watch and chain
    All I want is your heart, darling
    Say you'll take ma back again

    The oceans deep and I can't wade in
    And I have no wings to fly
    I'll escape, my blue-eyed, boat land
    Float or roll me over time

    I'll go back to East Virginia
    North Carolina ain't my home
    I'll go back to East Virginia
    Leave them north Carolina alone
