The day dawns early and lasts so long. Down in Virginia. The fertile fields resound with happy song. Down in Virginia. Rich lands like these we long have sought. And mourned because we found them not. But now our dream is o'er all else forgot. In fertile Old Virginia. The crops are nowhere on earth so sure As in Virginia. The water from her gushing spring so pure Down in Virginia. The peanuts nowhere grow so sweet, And nowhere can early vegetables be beat. The summer and spring so closely meet, Down in Virginia. Nowhere on earth is woman's smile so sweet As in Virginia. So bright and fair, so hard to beat, so bright and fair, so hard to beat, As in virginia. The mountain breezes, give her cheeks a hue, Her natural ways add grace to hearts so true. And I often think as a bachelor I'll sue For a wife Down in Virginia. W. D. Me.
