Fairer than the golden morning,
Gentle as the tonque can tell,
Was our little laughing darling;
Sweet Virginia Belle.
Chorus:
Bright Virginia Belle!
Our Dear Virginia Belle!
She bereft us
When she left us;
Sweet Virginia Belle!
She was lythe as any fairy,
Winning hearts with fairy spell,
Tripping with a footstep airy,
Sweet Virginia Belle!
Chorus:

How we used to roam together
O’er the mountain, through the dell,
In the smiles of springtime weather,
Sweet Virginia Belle!
Chorus:
While her life was in its morning
Came a sad solemn knell,
She was taken without warning,
Sweet Virginia Belle!
