Lyrics: Walter Seacrist.
Tune: H. E. Engle.


Oh, those West Virginia Hills,
So majestic and so grand,
With their miners standing loyal,
As all union men should stand!
Is it any wonder then
That my heart with rapture thrills?
For again we have a union
In the West Virginia Hills.

Over the hills, beautiful hills,
There’s a union in the West Virginia Hills!
Tho’ o’er scab fields I should roam,
Still I’ll dream of happy home
And the Rednecks in the West Virginia Hills.

Oh, those West Virginia Hills,
They’re so beautiful and green!
If they could only tell you
Of the awful sights they’ve seen,
Of their union sons and daughters,
So noble and so brave,
By a cruel gunman’s bullet
Gone to fill an early grave.

Over the hills, beautiful hills,
There’s a union in the West Virginia Hills!
Tho’ o’er scab fields I should roam,
Still I’ll dream of happy home
And the Rednecks in the West Virginia Hills.
