  • (Music: \"East Virginia\")

  • (Banjo)

  • (Singing) I'm from

  • old East Virginia.

  • North Carolina

  • I did go.

  • I met

  • a fair, young maiden.

  • Her name I did not know.

  • (Banjo)

  • Don't that road

  • look rough and rocky?

  • Don't that sea look wide and deep?

  • Don't my darlin'

  • look

  • the sweetest ...

  • When she's in my arms asleep?

  • (Banjo)

  • Her hair

  • was a dark-brown curly.

  • Her cheeks were chestnut red.

  • On her breast

  • she wore a white lilly.

  • Through the night, the tears she shed.

  • (Banjo)

  • Captain,

  • Captain, I am dyin'.

  • Won't you take these words for me?

  • Take them back

  • to old East Virginia.

  • Tell my darlin' she is free.

  • (Banjo)

  • (Music ends)

  • (Applause and cheers)

  • That was a song called \"East Virginia\"

  • I learned from a man named Clifton Hicks

  • who lives down in Georgia.

  • The next song ...

  • I have for you

  • is called \"John Brown's Dream.\"

  • It's an old dance tune.

  • And you may notice that the banjo that I'm holding looks a little different

  • than banjos you might be used to seeing

  • or the one I just played, for example.

  • And this banjo is sort of an earlier model.

  • Banjos kind of evolved like a human has.

  • And I like to say that the sound that comes out of this banjo

  • is a sound that was just a little closer to the source,

  • which is Africa,

  • and some people forget that,

  • so, yeah ...

  • (Banjo tuning)

  • (Music: \"John Brown's Dream\")

  • (Banjo)

  • (Banjo continues)

  • (Singing) John Brown's dream,

  • John Brown's dream the devil was dead.

  • I'm gonna get that, get that, get that,

  • I'm gonna get that pretty little girl.

  • (Banjo)

  • John Brown's dream,

  • John Brown's dream the devil was dead.

  • (Banjo)

  • Come on, Liza, Liza, Liza.

  • Come on, Liza we'll be pickin' it again.

  • I'm gonna get that, get that, get that,

  • I'm gonna get that pretty little girl.

  • (Banjo)

  • (Music ends)

  • (Applause and cheers)

  • Thank you very much.
