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
