I've traveled over the country wide a seekin' fortune fair
I've been down the two coast lines, I've traveled everywhere
From Portland East and Portland West and back along the line
I'm goin' now to a place that's best that old home town of mine

Eight more miles and Louisville will come in to my view
Eight more miles on this old road and I'll never more be blue
I knew some day that I'd come back I knew it from the start
Eight more miles to Louisville the home town of my heart

There's sure to be a girl somewhere that you like best of all
Mine lives down in Louisville she's long and she is tall
But she's the kind that you can't find a rambling through the land
I'm on my way this very day to win her heart and hand

Oh, eight more miles and Louisville

Now I can picture in my mind a place we'll call our home
A humble little hut for two we'll never want to roam
The place that's right for that love site is in those bluegrass hills
Where gently flows the Ohio by a place called Louisville

Eight more miles to Louisville
