I'm Going Back to Old Kentucky
by Bill Monroe



When I left old Kentucky
Linda kissed me and she cried
I told her that I would not wander
I'd be back by and by

[Chorus]
I'm going back to old Kentucky
There to see my Linda Lou
I'm going back to old Kentucky
Where the skies are always blue

Linda Lou she is a beauty
Those pretty brown eyes I loved so well
I'm going back to old Kentucky
Never more to say farewell

[Chorus]

Linda Lou you know I love you
I long for you each night and day
When the roses bloom in old Kentucky
I'll be coming back to stay

[Chorus]
