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

1.The sun shines bright on my old Kentucky home,Tis summer the darkies are gray
2.They hunt no more for the possum and the coon, on the meadow the ill and the shore
3.the head must bow and the back will have to bend, wherever the darkies may go

The corn tops ripe and the meadows all in bloom, While the birds make music all the day
They sing no more by the glimmer of the moon, on the bench by the old cabin door
A few more days and the trouble all will end, in the field where the sugar canes grow

They young folks roll on the little cabin floor, All merry all happy and bright
The day goes by like a shadow o'er the heart, with sorrow where all was delight
A few more days for to tote the weary load, No matter twill never be light

By'n by hard times comes a knocking at the door, Then my old Kentucky home good night
The time has come when the darkies have to part, then my old Kentucky home good night
A few more days till we tooter on the road, Then my old Kentucky home good night
