Oh Kentucky
 
Lyrics
Oh! Kentucky I love your high ceilings
I love your stone pillars
I love your verandas your magnolia tree
oh Kentucky you are my childhood
you hold in your bosom
the dreams of my young years
give them to me
Oh Kentucky when I was a young girl
who climbed your magnolia
I said when I'm older
these things will be mine
the smell of your dogwood
your red bird your bluegrass
your chick'n and dumplin's
a home in the country
a love by my side
through the long years
I made my own choices
far short of your treasures
far short of the pleasures
you promised to me
I hid my feelings somewhere in my childhood somewhere in your caverns
I lost touch with the wildwood
growin' in me
Oh Kentucky now when I smell your breezes
it teases me back to the way I was then
and I have a fancy that if I let you reach me - you could teach me
to be young again
Kentucky
I'm done with hiding from dreams and
deep longings I buried within me now so long ago
so Kentucky bring on your nostalgia
I open my senses break through my defenses I'm ready to grow
Oh Ky I love your high ceilings I love your stone pillars I love your verandas
your magnolia tree so Kentucky bring on your nostalgia I open my senses break through my defenses : set me free
