Folk/Country songs performed by Fil Lyons, recorded in a West Virginian attic. Driven to California for the Hollow Boys to finish engineering it.
Mid the green fields of Virginia, in the veils of Shenandoah
stands an ivy-covered cottage that I love
with its quaint old-fashioned chimney
it's a simple home I loved
'tis a home of my dear parents now above.
How often have I thrown the stones into the babbling brook
and dreamed some day it would carry me away
One day in June my dreams came true;
I left the dear old home.
They told me mother's heart had broke that day.
Now I'm living in a mansion grand with wealth at my command.
I would give it all for just one single day
to be back with my old comrades
and to see my mother dear
Near the green fields of Virginia,
there's a little cottage there
a simple home I loved
My heart is longing for it day by day
Where I spent life's golden hours
in the veils of Shenandoah,
near the green fields of Virginia,
from Mother's Songs
