I've tried to forget you But found I was wrong; 'Neath your bright southern moon Once more I'll croon An old familiar tune. And if I can win ya, I'll never more roam; I'm comin' Virginia, My Dixieland home. Been a year since you seen me, That's an awfully long time! Don't want nothin' inbetween me And that old home of mine. I'm so tired and so lonely, Every hour seems a day, For there's one and just one only Understands when I say; I'm comin' Virginia, I'm comin' to stay; Dont hold it agin me For runnin' away. I've tried to forget you But found I was wrong, all wrong; 'Neath your bright southern moon Once more I'll croon An old familiar tune. And if I can win ya, I'll never more roam; I'm comin' Virginia, My Dixieland home. I'm comin', I'm comin' Virginia, My Dixieland home. (Contributed by Peter Akers - January 2011)
