I WAS BORN IN VIRGINIA aka "Virginia" aka "Ethel Levey's Virginia Song" From the George M. Cohan Broadway show "George Washington Jr." (1906) Ethel Levey (Broadway Production) - 1906 James Cagney, Walter Huston, Jeanne Cagney & Rosemary DeCamp (feat. in the film "Yankee Doodle Dandy") - 1942 I was born in a Southern state Where all nature's sublime In a city where the gals are pretty And the sun shines nearly all the time Hospitality there you'll find Bright smiles ev'rywhere When I look 'roun' and see some other town I'm mighty glad I come from there I was born in Virginia That's the state that will win yer If you've got a soul in yer Ain't no Southern frown In the city of Norfolk Home of beauties and war talk Reckon you'll like it, if you should strike it That doggarn town Something nice about Southerners You don't find ev'rywhere Never con yer, but they smile upon yer And they make you happy while you're there Old Kentucky and Tennessee They can certainly go some Travel far and wide, still I'm satisfied To settle in the state I'm from I was born in Virginia That's the state that will win yer If you've got a soul in yer Ain't no Southern frown In the city of Norfolk Home of beauties and war talk Reckon you'll like it, if you should strike it That doggarn town ********************************** As performed in the 1942 film "Yankee Doodle Dandy" I was born in Virgin-ya That's the state that will win-ya If you got a soul in-ya Ain't no Southern Frown In the city of Norfolk Home of beauties and war talk Reckon you'll like, if you should strike it That doggone town (Dance Routine) Reckon you'll like it, if you should strike it That doggone town **********************************
