Lyrics

I’m going back to old Kentucky There to see my Linda Lou I’m going back to old Kentucky Where the skies are always blue When my left old Kentucky Linda kissed me and she cried I told her that I would not linger I’d be back by and by Linda Lou is she is a beauty Those pretty brown eyes I loved so well I’m going back to old Kentucky Never more to say farewell 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
