Bill Monroe – On The Old Kentucky Shore lyrics

I walked out to the graveyard
Down by the Church of God
I looked upon the one I love
That would soon be covered with sod
Up along the Ohio River
Over on the old Kentucky shore
Once dwelled a fair young maiden
Now there's a crepe upon her door
The angels took my darling
God needed the one I loved
I reached the old Kentucky shore today
I'll make my plans and meet her up above
The last words that my darling said
Was tell the one I love goodbye
I would like to see him before I go
But I'll meet him in the sky
