VIRGINIA
Lyrics & Melody © Lawrence J. Studnicky III and John Macom 2014

VERSE 1
When I walked out your door I thought I’d go just a little way
Never thought those first five steps
Would become five hundred days
Now I’m looking over mountains
But they’re not the hills we knew
When we were young and crazy
I’m still crazy over you

CHORUS
Virginia I thought I saw you yesterday Vir-gin-i-ah
Hell I think about you every day I try and try but somehow I can’t seem to find a way
To get back home to Vir – gin – eye – ay I gotta get back home to Vir – gin – eye – ay

VERSE 2
Another girl claims she’s my wife I barely know her name
Must have met her while binging Just a bit too drunk on fame
She says she’ll be the answer To my hopes and fears and dreams
But when I wake up beside her
All I want to do is scream

CHORUS
I scream Virginia I thought I’d call you yesterday Virginia
Hell I think of calling everyday I try so hard but somehow I can’t seem to find a way
To get back home to Vir – gin – eye – ay

BRIDGE
With cannon balls in swimming pools Do I join the list of fools
Who want to love and be with you, Virginia?
Or am I hanging on too long
Maybe I should just move along
Somehow I can never run away

VERSE 3
Ah you could have stopped me with a look
Perhaps the faintest smile But you let me think your heart
Would forget me in awhile
Did pretending not to love me
Work out just as you planned
Or do you find when you’re dreaming I’m the one who holds your hand?

CHORUS
Hold on Virginia I almost got home yesterday Vir-gin-i-ah
Hell I may need one more day I try so hard but somehow I never find a way
To get back home to Vir – gin – eye –ay
I gotta get back home to
That girl today.
I gotta get back home to that girl.
