My Old Kentucky Home 
Stephen Foster

Info : "My Old Kentucky Home" was written and set to music by Stephen Collins Foster in
1850 and published in 1853 by Firth, Pound, and Company, New York. It was designated the
state song of Kentucky by an act of the legislature (Kentucky Acts, 1928), approved March 19, 1928.


This is the singing part of the song, and is correct.
