INTRO

C G C G   F G C G  


  C               G              C                G                 
I know I'm just a country girl I hadn't seen much of the world
  F                 G             C      G
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
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...
