I'm Coming, Virginia

I'm Coming, Virginia

(Donald Heywood / Will Marion Cook) 1927


Arthur Brigg's Savoy Syncop's Orchestra


I'm comin' Virginia,
I'm comin' to stay;
Don't hold it agin me
For runnin' away.


I've tried to forget you
But found I was wrong;
'Neath your bright southern moon
Once more I'll croon
A dear old mammy tune.


And if I can win ya,
I'll never more roam;
I'm comin' Virginia,
My Dixieland home.
