LYRIC

I’m old Kentucky bound

Some where among the hills of old Kentucky

There’s two old folks I love with all my heart

They’re praying for their boy to come back safely

And never no more from them depart

There’s a little sweetheart waiting for her darling

With her heart all filled with love divine

I long to hold her in my arms and kiss her

For tonight I’m old Kentucky bound

In summer when the birds are singing sweetly

And pretty flowers blooming all around

I long to climb that dear old rocky mountain

For tonight I’m old Kentucky bound

I’ll soon be with the ones I love so dearly

Lord, how I wish I had them with me now

They’ll greet me when I reach that little shanty

For tonight I’m old Kentucky bound
