Kentucky you are the dearest land outside of Heaven to me. Kentucky your laurels and your red bud trees. When I die I want to rest upon your graceful mountain so high. Kentucky that is where God will look for me. Kentucky I miss the darker singing in the silvery moonlight. Kentucky I miss the hound dog chasing coon. I know that my mother dad & sweetheart all are waiting for me. Kentucky I will be coming soon. Kentucky I will be coming soon.
