Kentucky, you are the dearest land outside of heaven to me
Kentucky, your laurels and your redbud trees
When I die, I want to rest upon some peaceful mountain so high
For there is where God will look for me.

--- Instrumental ---

Kentucky, I miss the old folks singing in the silvery moonlight
Kentucky, I miss the hound dogs chasing coons
I know that, my mother, dad, and sweetheart are waiting for me
Kentucky, I will be coming soon...


Thanks to for the correction
