Mickey Newbury - East Kentucky Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • East Kentucky, threads of silver,
  • Down a rusty railroad track.
  • Dusty highway, take me to Denver,
  • I will not be comin' back.
  • To the mountains of Colorado,
  • Like a bandit I will run.
  • To the beauty of the mountains,
  • To undo what she has done.
  • East Kentucky, threads of silver,
  • Down a rusty railroad track.
  • Dusty highway, take me to Denver,
  • I will not be comin' back.
  • [Whistling chorus.]
  • East Kentucky, I knew your daughter,
  • In the early morning rain.
  • And in the shadow of the tall pines,
  • I did love her with no shame.
  • Now the cold, gray hands of winter,
  • Lay upon the mountain side.
  • There's a bluebird seekin' shelter,
  • She ain't got no place to hide.
  • She ain't got no place to hide.
