Tom Paxton – Virginia Morning Lyrics

Sunshine on the hills, Virginia morning.
Looks to me like winter’s finally letting go again.
Spring can’t come to soon for me; outside’s where I wanna be.
All in all, I’d have to give this day a perfect ten.

Oh, It’s good to be alive, Virginia morning.
It’s good to feel your earth beneath my feet.
Rise and shine, Virginia morning,
You’ve got a sweet, sweet Virginia day to greet.
Rise and shine, Virginia morning,
You’ve got a sweet, sweet Virginia day to greet.

Shenandoah skies, Virginia morning.
Frost is gone and now there’s not a single cloud in sight.
Brand new foals on wobbly bents chase each other ’round the pens,
Makes me feel like running too in little kid delight.

Oh, It’s good to be alive, Virginia morning.

It’s good to feel your earth beneath my feet.
Rise and shine, Virginia morning,
You’ve got a sweet, sweet Virginia day to greet.
Rise and shine, Virginia morning,
You’ve got a sweet, sweet Virginia day to greet.

I brought these kids to you, Virginia morning.
Gonna raise them here the way my family raised me.
Rolling hills and winding streams called me to a thousand dreams.
Now I’m home to stay and that’s the way it’s gonna be.

Oh, It’s good to be alive, Virginia morning.
It’s good to feel your earth beneath my feet.
Rise and shine, Virginia morning,
You’ve got a sweet, sweet Virginia day to greet.
Rise and shine, Virginia morning,
You’ve got a sweet, sweet Virginia day to greet.
