East Virginia Girls

Come all ye East Virginia gals and listen to my noise
Don't go courtin' those West Virginia boys
If you do, your ration will be
Corn bread and 'lasses and sassafrass tea,
Corn bread and 'lasses and sassafrass tea.

When they go a-courtin', they take along a chair
First thing you hear is "Pappy shot a bear"
Next thing you hear, when you set down,
"Honey can you bake your johnny-cake brown "(2x)

When you go to meetin' I'll tell you what you'll wear
Old cotton dress, all shiny and bare
Old poke bonnet with the strings hangin' down
Old pair o' cotton socks you wear the year round (2x)
