lyrics

MY CLINCH MOUNTAIN HOME
Far away on the hills
To a sunny mountainside
Many years ago we parted
My little Ruth and I
From this sunny mountainside
She clung to me and trembled
When I told her we must part
She said "Don't go, my darling
it almost breaks my heart
To think of you so far apart"
Carry me back to old Virginny
Back to my Clinch Mountain home
Carry me back to old Virginny
Back to my Clinch Mountain home
Well, a-le-ho, le-ho-lay-ee
Well, a-le-ho, le-ho-lee
Yeah, lee-oh-lay-ee-hee
Oh, my mountain home
I folded my arms around her
Leaned her head against my breast
I told her I would wed her
When I came back from the west
Back to my Clinch Mountain home
In my hand I hold a picture
Of the old home far away
In the other one my sweetheart
I'm thinking of today
On the sunny mountainside
Carry me back to old Virginny
Back to my Clinch Mountain home
Carry me back to old Virginny
Back to my Clinch Mountain home
Well, a-le-ho, le-ho-lay-ee
Well, a-le-ho, le-ho-lee
Yeah, lee-oh-lay-ee-hee
Oh, my mountain home
[INSTRUMENTAL BREAK]
My mother's old and feeble
My father's getting gray
I'm going back to Virginia
And I expect to stay
At my old Clinch Mountain home
[CHORUS]
