Lyrics
West Virginia, oh, my home,
West Virginias where I belong,
I slip away like a bird in flight,
Back to those hills, the place that I call home.

Its been years now since I left it,
But I can sure remember where I came from.

West Virginia, oh, my home,
West Virginias where I belong,
I slip away like a bird in flight,
Back to those hills, the place that I call home.

Well, I paid the price for the leaving,
And this life I have is not the one I thought Id find.
But when I go, just let me die
Among the friends wholl remember when Im gone.
West Virginia, oh, my home,
West Virginias where I belong,
I slip away like a bird in flight,
Back to those hills, the place that I call home.

Home, home, home,
Oh, I can see its all here in my mind.
I can almost smell the honey suckle veins.

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.
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.
