Additional Details:
The roses nowhere bloom so white as in Virginia; The sunshine nowhere shines so bright as in Virginia; The birds sing nowhere quite so sweet And nowhere hearts so lightly beat, For heaven and earth both seem to meet Down in Virginia. The days are never quite so long as in Virginia; Nor quite as filled with happy song, as in Virginia; And when my time as come to die, Just take me back and let me lie, Close where the James goes rolling by, Down in Virginia. There is nowhere a land so far as in Virginia; So full of song, so free of care, as in Virginia; And I believe that Happy Land The Lord's prepared for mortal man Is built exactly on the plan of old Virginia
