Kentucky Wildwood (song #6812)

Kentucky Wildwood Oh, I found in Kentucky a raven haired girl There strolling mid the roses all covered with dew That girl in Kentucky, she set my mind awhirl With a smile on her face and eyes of brightest blue

I told her I’d love her if she would be my flower And how our love would blossom, time would surely show But she told me I could never come to her bower For her new husband and lover would surely know

I left in fair Kentucky that raven haired girl She watched as I departed but she understood That girl in Kentucky, she set my mind awhirl And I’ll always remember Kentucky wildwood

(instrumental)

I left in fair Kentucky that raven haired girl She watched as I departed but she understood That girl in Kentucky, she set my mind awhirl And I’ll always remember Kentucky wildwood

Yes, I will remember until I’m old and grey Kentucky wildwood and the girl I met that day And when my time has come please carve upon my grave In Kentucky wildwood his heart he gave away
