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