12 BLUE GRASS BALLADS
And for your strong and loving ways, Your happy homes and graces,
Your sons are zealous that your name Shall hold the highest places,
And love you, dear Kentucky.
Oh, may you live ten thousand years
In all your strength and beauty, And may your sons cling close to you
In loyal love and duty; And may your fields be ever fair
And all your sorrows lightest, While all your joys shall grow apace,
The sweetest and the brightest; May Peace and Plenty live with you,
Through all the coming ages, And ever pure your history be
In all its shining pages,
As our love, Kentucky.
