West Virginia My Home chords - Hazel Dickens

Hazel Dickens Sheet music

Hazel Dickens is one of my favorite singers, and one of my favorite people. I
have had the pleasure of meeting and singing with her several times at
Augusta, and she is as genuine a person as you're likely to encounter. Her
testimonial to her home state is my all-time favorite song, one that I sing
every day. I learned it from her album entitled "Hard-Hitting Songs for Hard-
Hit People," and I am constantly amazed that a lifelong Illinoisan like myself
can identify so strongly with the bittersweet reverence with which she packs
this powerful ballad. Just as the Everly Brothers, Louvin Brothers, and Blue
Sky Boys did with "Kentucky," Hazel evokes a universal sentiment with this
geographically specific song. 

John (a.k.a. "West Virginia Slim")


           D                     G
West Virginia, oh my home.
            D                          A
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
         D                           A                        D
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.


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.


G         A        D                                                 A
Home, home, home. I can see it so clear in my mind.
G         A       D
Home, home, home. I can almost smell the honeysuckle vines.

[Repeat last two lines of chorus.]
