Mid The Green Fields Of Virginia

print

Mid the green fields of Virginia
In the veil of Shenandoah
There’s an ivy covered homestead that I love
With it’s white old fashioned chimney
And it’s simple homelike hours
Tis the home of my dear parents now above

   There’s a peaceful cottage there
   A happy home so dear
   My heart is longing for them day by day
   Where I spent life’s golden hours
   In the veil of Shenandoah
   Mid the green fields for Virginia far away

Mid the green fields of Virginia
Stands an old mill by the stream
I once wondered to that spot to sing and play
And how often I would throw the stone
Into the pebbling brook
I would dream someday it’d carry me away
