Emmylou Harris - Blue Kentucky Girl Lyrics

 

You left me for the bright lights of the town

A country boy set out to see the world

Remember when those neon lights shine down

That big old moon shines on your Kentucky girl

 

I swear I love you by the moon above you

How bright is it shining in your world

Some morning when you wake up all alone

Just come on home to your blue Kentucky girl

 

Don't wait to bring great riches home to me

I need no diamond rings or fancy pearls

Just bring yourself, you're all I'll ever need

That's good enough for this blue Kentucky girl

 

I swear I love you by the moon above you

How bright is it shining in your world

Some morning when you wake up all alone

Just come on home to your blue Kentucky girl

Just come on home to your blue Kentucky girl
