. Take Me Home
Take me back to old Kentucky, ".
Where the crystal waters glint
As they dance along the borders,
Through the fragrant beds of mint;
Where the lasses and the horses
Are but terms for grace and speed,
And the whiskey and the statesman
Are both noted for their "bead."
Take me back to old Kentucky,
Where strong waters flow so free;
Where they cool off in the summer,
' .Neath the spreading julep, tree;
Where the "high balls" and the "low
Always hit the center square;
And you never have next morning,
Rheumatism in your hair.
Take me back to old Kentucky,
Where the blue grass decks the hills,
Where they have no use for water
Save for operating mills:
For they scorn it as a beverage,
On that dark and bloody ground
As they claim e'er since the deluge v
That it tastes of sinners drowned.
Take me back to old Kentucky,
To the state where I was born;
Where the corn is full of kernels,
And the Colonels full of "corn"
Where to disapprove that beverage
Is to toy with sudden death;
And they have a bonded warehouse
. Where they barrel up their breath.
Take me back to old Kentucky,
Let me hear the pistols pop,
See the pigs and politicians
With their snouts deep in slopr
Take me back to those blue mountains,
Where they argue points with lead;
But you needn't rush the matter
Take me back when I am dead.
