Eight More Miles to Louisville lyrics
I've traveled over the country wide a seekin' fortune fair I've been down the two coast lines I've traveled everywhere From Portland east and Portland west and back along the line I'm goin' now to a place that's best that old home town of mine Eight more miles and Louisville will come in to my...back I knew it from the start Eight more miles to Louisville the home town of my heart There's bound to be a girl somewhere that you like best of all Mine lives down in Louisville she's long and she is tall But she's the kind that you can't find a rambling through the land I'm on my way this very day to win her heart and hand Oh, eight more miles and Louisville will come in to my view Eight more miles on this old road and I'll never more be blue I knew some day that I'd come back I knew it from the start Eight more miles to Louisville the home town of my heart Now I can picture in my mind a place we'll call our home A humble little hut for two we'll never want to roam The place that's right for that love site is in those bluegrass hills Where gently flows the Ohio by a place called Louisville Eight more miles and Louisville will come in to my view Eight more miles on this old road and I'll never more be blue I knew some day that I'd come back I knew it from the start Eight more miles to Louisville the home town of my heart
