Kentucky
You are the dearest land outside of Heaven to me
Kentucky
I miss your laurels and your redbud trees
When I die, I want to rest upon your graceful mountains so free
For that is where God will look for me

Kentucky
I miss the old folks singing in the silvery moonlight
Kentucky
I miss the hound dogs chasin' coons
I know that
My mother, dad and sweetheart are waiting for me
Kentucky
I will be coming soon

Kentucky

    My sister and her family will be moving there. A later in life move for them, and I wanted to give them a gift of music to take them on their way. Happened upon this as I googled. Wonderful song, and enhances my earlier life love of the everly brothers!
