Brown Eyed Kentucky Girl

print

I traveled to Kentucky to court a fair young girl
Whose eyes were of the darkest brown and her hair had a charming curl
She had the sweetest lips to kiss that I had ever found
And she made me feel as if I was the only man around

Some people think of horses when you talk of the Bluegrass State
Others think their bourbon is what makes it so great
But the reason that the Bluegrass State stands in my memory
Is that brown eyed Kentucky girl she means so much to me

I remember very clearly it was on a warm spring night
We declared we loved each other and to marry would be right
It was a short time later in the month of July
Our lives were joined together we were one she and I

Many years have come and gone since the day that we met
Our love has grown much stronger and it is growing yet
We have a happy home and children we have three
We still enjoy each other this Kentucky girl and me
