Additional Details:
The moonlight falls the softest in Kentucky; The Summer days come oftest in Kentucky; Friendship is the strongest, Love's light glows the longest, Yet, wrong is always wrongest in Kentucky. Life's burden bear the lightest in Kentucky; The home fires burn the brightest in Kentucky; While players are the keenest Cards come out the meanest, The pocket empties cleanest in Kentucky. The sun shines ever brightest in Kentucky; The breezes whisper lighest in Kentucky; Plain girls are the fewest, Their little hearts are truest, Maindens eyes the bluest in Kentucky. Orators are the grandest in Kentucky; Officials are the blandest in Kentucky; Boys are all the fliest, Danger ever nighest, Taxes are the highest in Kentucky. The bluegrass waves the bluest in Kentucky; Yet, bluebloods are the fewest in Kentucky; Moonshine is the clearest, By no-means the dearest, And, yet, it acts the queerest in Kentucky.The dovenotes are the saddest in Kentucky; The streams dance on the gladdest in Kentucky; Hip pockets are the thickest, Pistol hands the slickest, The cylinder turns quickest in Kentucky. The song birds are the sweetest in Kentucky; Mountains tower proudest, Thunder peals the loudest, The landscape is the grandest - And politics - the damnedest in Kentucky.
