"I Was Born in Virginia" as written by and George Cohan....
I was born in a Southern state
Where all nature's sublime
In a city where the gals are pretty
And the sun shines nearly all the time
Hospitality there you'll find
Bright smiles everywhere
When I look 'roun' and see some other town
I'm mighty glad I come from there

I was born in Virginia
That's the state that will win yer
If you've got a soul in yer
Ain't no Southern frown
In the city of Norfolk
Home of beauties and war talk
Reckon you'll like it, if you should strike it
That doggarn town

Something nice about Southerners
You don't find ev'rywhere
Never con yer, but they smile upon yer
And they make you happy while you're there
Old Kentucky and Tennessee
They can certainly go some
Travel far and wide, still I'm satisfied
To settle in the state I'm from

I was born in Virginia
That's the state that will win yer
If you've got a soul in yer
Ain't no Southern frown
In the city of Norfolk
Home of beauties and war talk
Reckon you'll like it, if you should strike it
That doggarn town
