Lyrics


Way back in '75

Packed my bags never making a plan
Left my wife and my kids and land
So the story goes

I travelled a million miles
Ran away from the mess that I caused
Forget the family that I had lost
So the story goes

Oh sweet Virginia I can almost hear you calling for me
Oh dear Virginia I can almost hear you comforting this
Lonely old soul who's lost and alone
Virginia I was wrong, Virginia bring me home

I lay myself to sleep 
Drink away all the damage I've done
Finally found nowhere else to run
So the story goes

Oh sweet Virginia in my mind I make my way back to my
Home town, Virginia, where the roaring rivers wash away my sins
and my pain, to start life again
Virginia I was wrong, Virginia bring me home

Oh sweet Virginia I can almost hear you calling for me
Oh dear Virginia I can almost hear you comforting this
Lonely old soul who's lost and alone
Virginia I was wrong, Virginia bring me home

Way back in '75
Packed my bags never making a plan
Left my wife and my kids and land
On the story goes
