The sun shines bright, In the old Kentucky home, Tis summer, the darkies are gay, - The corn tops ripe, And the meadows are in bloom, While the birds make musical the day. The young folks roll On the little cabin floor, All merry and hoppy and bright. By why hard time comes o knock in at the door Then my Old Kentucky Home good night. Weep no more my lady. - Oh weep no more to day, - We will sing one song, For the old Kentucky home For the old Kentucky home, - for away. In the Summer of 1852, the gifted composer Stephen Foster was visiting at Federal Hill and there composed and wrote the immortal "My Old Kentucky Home".
