Earl Scruggs Documentary, Home of Thomas B. Allen, Carmel NY - 17.may.1970
I was born in East Virginia
North Carolina i did gos/roam
There i met the fairest maiden
Name an' age i do not know.
Her hair it was the darkest color
Cheeks they were a rosy red
On her breast she wore white lilies
Where i long to lay my head.
I'd rather be in some dark holler
Where the sun don't ever shine
Than to see you love another
And to know you'll never be mine.
I don't want your greenback dollar
I don't want your diamond ring
All i want is your love darling
Won't you take me back again
Won't you take me back again.
