West Virginia Woman
recorded by Bobby Bare
written by Bobby Bare and Billy Joe Shaver
C                              F
I was New York City bound when I left my old hometown
      C                                         G7
But I got hung up like a fool somehow along the way
     C                          F
Lord God her name was Sally she lived in the Kanawha Valley
     C                     G7                 C
Just outside of Charleston West Virginia US of A
Sally done me down and dirty really put that hurting on me
       C                                      G7
Reckon how she must have got her kicks that'a way
    C                                     F
She turned me every way but loose blew my mind and cooked my goose
    C                                 G7            C
And stomped my Georgia soul into that West Virginia clay
        F                              C
Now I'm walking back to Georgia crying Lord I feel like I'm a dying
     G7                                        C
Everything I try to do right seems to turn out wrong
  F                            C                              G7
I met a gal from West Virginia that woman sure enough sent me home
        C         G7                      C
With my hat in my hand a humming some old worn out song
                 F            C  G7  C
Like a man whose mind is gone uh huh huh
