Cities that Make Virginia Home

Richmond, Virginia,

Unique in a lot of ways,

Leaves me amazed,

Driving throughout the town,

The heart of the Commonwealth,


Winds blow through the waves,

You love the waterways,

The waters flow,

Freely from the creek,

The oysters are not to be beat,

Boats come ashore,

Shrimp is there,

There is always more,

A city on the rise,

See the beauty of it,

Right through your eyes,

The night glistens,

I sit by the waterfront and listen,

Ships along the Elizabeth River,

On fun and joy,

The city delivers,

Sit on your porch each morning,

While trains run through the town,

They chug along the rails,

Built deep into the ground,

The locomotive often loud,

Always I have known,

I consider the Commonwealth of Virginia,

My beloved home.
