I’m On My Way Somewhere

When Louisville was eight more miles away my old heart sung a song
Well I thought I’d hug kiss my gal before so very long
But when I got to Louisville I found she wasn’t true
So I’ll tell you all about it now that’s why I feel so blue

When I got to Louisville my gal she wasn’t there
They sais she’d gone with someone else it was more than I could bear
So I’m heading out of this old town where to I don’t much care
Louisville is eight miles back and I’m on my way somewhere

I always dreamed of some sweet day when she could be my wife
And we would settle down somewhere and lead a happy life
But now I know just how things are and how they’d always be
So I know now Louisville just ain’t the place for me

Right now I’m traveling down this road to get her off my mind
The thing I want to do is leave old Louisville behind
Who knows I may find happiness and one who fills the bill
A girl that’s true and not like her that lives in Louisville
