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 burdens bear the lightest, In Kentucky. The home fires burn in brightest, In Kentucky. While players are the keenest, Cards come out the meanest, The pocket empties cleanest, In Kentucky. The sun shines ever brgightest, In Kentucky. The breezes whisper lightest, In Kentucky. Plain girls are the fewest, Their little hearts are truest, Their little hearts are trusest, Maidens 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 hightest, In Kentucky. The blue grass 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 dove notes 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. 7. The song birds are the sweetest, In Kentucky. The thoroughbreds are fleetest, In Kentucky. Mountains tower produest,Thunder peals the loudest, The landscape is the grandest, And politics - the damndest, In Kentucky. And yet, it acts the queerest, In Kentucky.
