Down in old Kentucky where horseshoes are lucky
There's a village smithy standin' under the chestnut tree
Hear the hammer knockin', see the anvil rockin'
He sings the boogie blues while he's hammerin' on the shoes

See the hot sparks a-flyin' like fourth of July-in'
He's even got the horses cloppin' pop, down the avenue
Folks love the rhythm, the clang bangin' rhythm
You'll get a lot of kicks out of the blacksmith blues

Down in old Kentucky where horseshoes are lucky
There's a village smithy standin' under the chestnut tree
Hear the hammer knockin', see the anvil rockin'
He sings the boogie blues while he's hammerin' on the shoes

See the hot sparks a-flyin' like fourth of July-in'
He's even got the horses cloppin' bop, down the avenue
Folks love the rhythm, the clang bangin' rhythm
You'll get a lot of kicks out of the blacksmith blues

Oh, down in old Kentucky where horseshoes are lucky
There's a village smithy standin' under the chestnut tree
Hear the hammer knockin', see the anvil rockin'
He sings the boogie blues while he's hammerin' on the shoes

See the hot sparks a-flyin' like fourth of July-in'
He's even got the horses cloppin' bop, down the avenue
Folks love the rhythm, the clang bangin' rhythm
You'll get a lot of kicks out of the blacksmith blues

Out of the blacksmith blues
Out of the blacksmith blues
Hammer knockin', anvil rockin'
Horses cloppin', pops are boppin'
The blacksmith blues
