Old Home Place Of Mine

There’s a place in old Kentucky where I’m longing to be
Where the bluegrass is growing so fine
Where the dogwoods are in bloom in the mountains so high
Around that old home place of mine

Oh the bluegrass is growing in the valley
And the birds are singing in the trees
That’s where I want to go when I leave this world below
It’s home sweet home to me

Oh the good time I had playin’ as a lad
They often enter my mind
Oh how long my heart did grive that day I had to leave
That dear old home place of mine

I remember Dad and Mom sitting there all alone
That day I left them behind
Oh how my heart does yearn for the day when I’ll return
Back to that old home place of mine
