I'm goin' back to old Kentucky
There to see my Linda Lou
I'm goin' back to old Kentucky
Where the skies are always blue

When I left old Kentucky
Linda kissed me and she cried
I told her that I wouldn't linger
I'd be back by and by

I'm goin' back to old Kentucky
There to see my Linda Lou
I'm goin' back to old Kentucky
Where the skies are always blue

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

I'm goin' back to old Kentucky
There to see my Linda Lou
I'm goin' back to old Kentucky
Where the skies are always blue

Now 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

I'm goin' back to old Kentucky
There to see my Linda Lou
I'm goin' back to old Kentucky
Where the skies are always blue

I'm goin' back to old Kentucky
There to see my Linda Lou
I'm goin' back to old Kentucky
Where the skies are always blue
