Lyrics

I was born in East Virginia

North Carolina I did go

There I met a fair young madden

Name and age I do not know

 

On her feet she wore these slippers

In her hair she wore a bow

An how I loved that brown eyed darling

No one In this world could know

 

Her hair it was an auburn color

Lips they were a ruby red

On her breast she wore white roses

Where I long to lay my head

 

I know her parents seem to like me

I hope her friends all feel the same

If I’m written down in your book love

Won’t you please plot out my name

 

I was born in East Virginia

North Carolina I did go

There I met a beautiful young woman

Name and age now I know
