lyrics

That summer storm of ‘26
Wiped out all we had
We lost our fields to raging floods
And herds to Hawkensville

I tried for honest work
It wasn’t in my blood I guess

Virginia, I miss ya
These southern nights have got the best of me
Virginia, I miss ya
Forgive my faults o mamma
I did this all for you and me

We pushed those mares till they were sick
Broke through the valley crash
Sold family jewels to pay some debt
From days of smuggling hash

Those days are gone for good
I’ll make a better life for us
