Twas only a simple ballad

When I was a boy

Twas only a simple ballad

You're going far away lad, or, I'm still your mother, dear

Twas only a simple ballad

Let me take her away

When I was a boy

When I was a boy

Let me take her away

Teach our baby that I'm dead

Teach our baby that I'm dead

Let me take her away

Teach our baby that I'm dead

You're still my dear old daddy

Teach our baby that I'm dead

Let me take her away

You're still my dear old daddy

You're still my dear old daddy

Twas only a simple ballad

When I was a boy

You're still my dear old daddy

When I was a boy

Let me take her away

You're going far away lad, or, I'm still your mother, dear

You're still my dear old daddy

Let me take her away

You're still my dear old daddy

You're still my dear old daddy

When I was a boy

You're still my dear old daddy

You're still my dear old daddy

Twas only a simple ballad

Twas only a simple ballad

You're still my dear old daddy

Teach our baby that I'm dead

Teach our baby that I'm dead

You're going far away lad, or, I'm still your mother, dear

You're going far away lad, or, I'm still your mother, dear

She rests by the Suwanee River

Little Kinkey wooley head

Just as the sun went down

She was bred in old Kentucky

She was bred in old Kentucky

Forget me not

When the roses are in bloom

She was bred in old Kentucky

Place a light to guide me home

The boys who wear the blue are turning gray

Just as the sun went down

There never was a place like home

She was bred in old Kentucky

Just as the sun went down

Will I find my mamma there

She rests by the Suwanee River

She rests by the Suwanee River

Just as the sun went down

Little Kinkey wooley head

She was bred in old Kentucky

Just as the sun went down

When the roses are in bloom

She was bred in old Kentucky

Life's golden moments

She was bred in old Kentucky

She was bred in old Kentucky

Just as the sun went down

Just as the sun went down

She was bred in old Kentucky

She was bred in old Kentucky

Just as the sun went down

Life's golden moments

She was bred in old Kentucky

Just as the sun went down

Just as the sun went down

She was bred in old Kentucky

She rests by the Suwanee River

She'll never know he loved her

She was bred in old Kentucky

She rests by the Suwanee River

She'll never know he loved her

When the roses are in bloom

Just as the sun went down
