An Obscure 1972 Tune "Virginia hold on"

Not too long ago, someone else had asked what this song was on this site. I've also been searching for it as well, so I thought I'd repost the question.
The year was 1972; It was on the radio around the time of 'Summer Breeze', 'Heart of Gold', 'A Horse With No Name' and 'Rocket Man' but obviously wasn't a big hit. I don't think it was merely regional in scope, but I'd heard it more than a few times back then on the local stations in New Mexico.
Here are some lyrics from the last verse and chorus:
When that train pulls around the bend
I know my friends will all be waiting there for me
But my welcome home won't be quite complete
Until I meet the girl I've traveled home to see
Virginia be strong,
For I won't be long,
Virginia hold on.
You'd think the name of the song would be in the chorus line, but this isn't the case from what I've searched. I've searched literally everywhere and still nothing.
Anybody have any clue who did this...or what the name of the song was?
