Folk/Country songs performed by Fil Lyons, recorded in a West Virginian attic. Driven to California for the Hollow Boys to finish engineering it.

lyrics

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,
far away,
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,
far away.
