Don't Forget This Song

Lyrics Shared By: Jennifer

My home’s in old Virginia
Among the lovely hills
The memory of my birthplace
Lies in my bosom still

I did not like my fireside
I did not like my home
I have a mind for rambling
So far away from home

It was on one moonlight evening
The stars were shining bright
And with an ugly dagger
I made the spirit fly

It was then the soul first struck me
As plain as you could see
I’m doomed, I’m ruined forever
Throughout eternity

I courted a fair young maiden
Her name I will not tell
Oh, why should I disgrace her
When I am doomed for hell

But now I’m upon my scaffold
My time’s not every long
You may forget the singer
But don’t forget the song
