I was born in West Virginia
North Carolina did I go,
there I met a fair young maiden,
and whose name I do not know,

Well her hair was dark of colour,
cheeks they were a rose red,
on her breast she wore white lily, s
where I longed to lay my head

I Don, t want your greenback dollar,
I Don, t want your silver chain
all I want is your love darling,
say that you'll be mine again,

I'd rather live in some dark holler
where the sun would never shine,
than for you to love another,
and to know you'd never be mine.

There was a fifth stanza done by Cisco Houston (East Virginia) and it's on the liner notes.
