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

I'm going back to old Kentucky
There tro 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

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
