Bus Fare To Kentucky Lyrics

I know I'm just a country girl I hadn't seen much of
the world
Today my bus pulled out of old Kentucky
My daddy waved and mama cried and I felt all choked up
inside
Cause I was leavin' everyone that loved me.

The first I saw of city ways went against how I was
raised
This country girl was really out of place
And I was set to go back home but I was broke and all
alone
And I couldn't find another friendly face.

But I didn't have the bus fare to Kentucky
Or this city would have seen the last of me
I didn't have the bus fare to Kentucky
And that old Grey Dog won't let me ride for free.

--- Instrumental ---

I met a boy from Tennessee and I guess he reminded me
Of someone that I knew in old Kentucky
It was good to have a friend and it was good to laugh
with him
And it was good to hear him say he loved me.

I never thought he'd do me wrong so I gladly went along
I loved him more than any man I've known
And after he had all his fun he told me that our love
was done
And then he left this country girl alone.

I didn't have the bus fare to Kentucky
Or this city would have seen the last of me
I didn't have the bus fare to Kentucky
And that old Grey Dog won't let me ride for free.

I can't afford to go first class so I'll make it the
best I can
Anything to get my feet on that good Kentucky land
My thumb is in the air and my suitcase by my side
Won't somebody give this poor old country girl a ride.

Kentucky I'm a comin' home I'll never leave you anymore
Kentucky I don't know why I ever strayed
Kentucky your bluegrass bridges and your valleys call
to me
Kentucky I'm comin' home to stay
Kentucky I'm a comin' home I'll never leave you
anymore...
