Going down to Renfro to the Bluegrass Holy Land
Lily May Ledford's got an all girl fiddle band
No need to worry pretty Baby, just take me by the hand
Were going down to Renfro to the Bluegrass Holy Land,

We got Daddy's Old Jalopy
We got Hillbilly pop in a jar
We got 60 miles from Boonville, so it won't be very far,
If the Good Lord's a willing and the creek don't take my car
We will make it over Flat Lick right on time,

Going down to Renfro to the Bluegrass Holy Land
Lily May Ledford's got an all girl fiddle band

No need to worry pretty Baby just take me by the hand
Were going down to Renfro to the Bluegrass Holy Land

John Laird will have the big barn all dressed up and ready to go
He promised Old Slim Miller he can open up the show
Thank God Old Slim picked up that fiddle over a hoe
Warming them up for Lily May and her Coon Creek Girls

Spoken: Look! I see Aunt Idy harper,
Sweet little Judy Dell, Little Clifford w/ his pony,
Harmonica Bill Russell, Granny Harper,
Fanny and Abner w/ that trick mule.
... There's Lily May w/ her banjo,
And Irene on guitar, Opal Ambergy smiling w/ her big
Bass fiddle, Bertha Ambergy on violin.
I heard they just played for the FDR himself and the
King and Queen of England!

Going down to Renfro to the Bluegrass Holy Land
Lily May Ledford's got an all girl fiddle band
No need to worry pretty Baby just take me by the hand
Were going down to Renfro to the Bluegrass Holy Land
