Chorus: West Virginia, oh my home. West Virginia, where I belong. In the dead of the night, in the still and the quiet I slip away like a bird in flight Back to those hills, the place that I call home. It's been years now since I left there And this city life's about got the best of me. I can't remember why I left so free what I wanted to do, what I wanted to see, But I can sure remember where I come from. Chorus----- Well I paid the price for the leavin' And this life I have is not one I thought I'd find. Just let me live, love, let my cry, but when I go just let me die Among the friends who'll remember when I'm gone. Chorus----- Bridge: Home, home, home. I can see it so clear in my mind. Home, home, home. I can almost smell the honeysuckle vines.
