East Virginia - Joan Baez (瓊·貝茲)

I was born in east Virginia


North Carolina I did roam


There I met a pretty maiden


Her name and age I do not know


Her hair it was of a brightsome color


And her lips of a ruby red


On her breast she wore white lilies


There I longed to lay my head


Well in my heart you are my darling


And at my door you're welcome in


At my gate I'll meet you my darling


If your love I could only win


I'd rather be in some dark holler


Where the sun refused to shine


Than to see you another man's darling


And to know that you'll never be mine


Well in the night I'm dreaming about you


In the day I find no rest


Just the thought of you my darling


Sends aching pains all through my breast


Well when I'm dead and in my coffin


With my feet turned toward the sun


Come and sit beside me darling


Come and think on the way you done
