In the lush Virginia hills they kept her as long as they could
'Cause they knew when the white brother found
White shell beads wrapped around her skin a life giving river
Her body open as will his hand with a goodbye there she goes

She may betray all that she loves and even wait for their savior to come
And in some things, maybe he'll be right
But as always the thing that he loves
He will change from her sunrise to clockwise to soul trading
Still she'll lay down her body covering him all the same

So hundreds of years go by, she's a girl out working her trade
(The red road carved up by sharp knife)
And she loses a little each day to ghetto pimps and presidents
Who try and arouse her turquoise serpents
She can't recall what they represent and when you ask, she won't know

She will betray all that she loves and even wait for their savior to come
And in some things, maybe he'll be right
But as always the thing that he loves
He will change from her sunrise to clockwise to soul trading
Still she'll lay down her body covering him all the same

Oh Virginia you won't even [Incomprehensible]
Oh Virginia you won't even [Incomprehensible]
Oh Virginia you won't even [Incomprehensible]
Oh Virginia you cant remember your name
