C G C G F G C C G C G I know I'm just a country girl I hadn't seen much of the world F G C Today my bus pulled out of old Kentucky C G C G My daddy waved and mama cried and I felt all choked up inside F G C Cause I was leavin' everyone that loved me. G G The first I saw of city ways went against how I was raised F C This country girl was really out of place G G And I was set to go back home but I was broke and all alone F C And I couldn't find another friendly face. E Am But I didn't have the bus fare to Kentucky G C Or this city would have seen the last of me E Am I didn't have the bus fare to Kentucky D G And that old Grey Dog won't let me ride for free. C G C G C G C G I met a boy from Tennessee and I guess he reminded me F G C G Of someone that I knew in old Kentucky C G C G It was good to have a friend and it was good to laugh with him F G C And it was good to hear him say he loved me. G G I never thought he'd do me wrong so I gladly went along F C I loved him more than any man I've known G G And after he had all his fun he told me that our love was done F C And then he left this country girl alone. E Am But I didn't have the bus fare to Kentucky G C Or this city would have seen the last of me E Am I didn't have the bus fare to Kentucky D G And that old Grey Dog won't let me ride for free. G I can't afford to go first class so I'll make it the best I can G Anything to get my feet on that good Kentucky land G My thumb is in the air and my suitcase by my side G Won't somebody give this poor old country girl a ride. C F Kentucky I'm a comin' home I'll never leave you anymore G C Kentucky I don't know why I ever strayed C F Kentucky your bluegrass bridges and your valleys call to me G C Kentucky I'm comin' home to stay C F Kentucky I'm a comin' home I'll never leave you anymore...
