"BURY ME IN VIRGINNY" [2014]


Bury me

In ol’ Virginny

Don’t leave my body here

In New York City

I long to rest in peace

Under the dogwood trees

So bury me in Virginny

Won’t you please?

 

And that’s not to say the travelin’s hard

No, I’m thrivin' and I’ve never been better

I just mean that when I fold all my cards

Won’t you take me to that sunny ol’ weather?

 

And bury me

In ol’ Virginny

Don’t leave my body here

In gai Paris

I long to rest in peace

With a cold glass o' sweet tea

So bury me in Virginny

Won’t you please?

 

But that’s not to say the goin’ got too rough

No I’m thrivin’ and I’ve never felt better

I just mean that when the hour it comes

Won’t you leave me in that sunny ol’ weather?

 

I say I’m leavin' but I always end up hangin' around

It got me drinkin' so much I can’t stand it

It got me scrapin' at the bottom of the barrel

It got me spendin’ my pay in a barroom haze

In this town

 

So bury me

In ol' Virginny

Don’t leave my body here

In Tennessee

I long to rest in peace

In a Blue Ridge breeze

So bury me in Virginny

Won’t you please?
