Hey, honey, won't you sit down
And stop here for a spell
Singin' the sweet old lullabies
To forget about your health
Don't think about tomorrow
It's a whole night's sleep away
Sure would be pleased to have you stay

And it's reach out old Virginia
Won't you rock him close to you
The poor boy's had a hotel so long
He don't know what to do
It's time to come on home
And put your feet up for a while
So much travlin' 'round tends to take away your smile

'Pears to me it's all a body can do to stay in tune
And you've been strainin' at those strings
From mornin' till noon
So come on down and hang around
It'll put you right real soon
'Cause nothing's changed
It's all the same

Reach out old Virginia
Won't you rock him close to you
The poor boy's had a hotel so long
He don't know what to do
It's time to come on home
And put your feet up for a while
So much travlin' 'round can take away your smile

Reach out old Virginia
Won't you rock him close to you
The poor boy's had a hotel so long
He don't know what to do
It's time to come on home
And put your feet up for a while
So much travlin' 'round can take away your smile
