In Kentucky 1. The moonlight falls the softest, The summer days come oftest, Friendship is the strongest, Love's light glows the longest, Yet, wrong is always wrongest in Kentucky. 2. Life's burdens bear the lightest, The home fires burn the brightest, While Players are the keenest, Cards come out the meanest, The pocket emptiest cleanest in Kentucky. 3. The sun shines ever brightest, The breezes whisper lightest, Plain girls are the fewest, Their little hearts are truest, Maidens' eyes the bluest in Kentucky. 4. Orators are the grandest, Officials are the blandest, Boys are all the fliest, Danger ever nightest,Taxes are the highest in Kentucky. 5. The bluegrass waves the bluest, Yet, bluebloods are the fewest (?), Moonshine is the clearest, By no means the dearest, And, yet, it acts the queerest in Kentucky. 6. The dovenotes are the saddeest, The streams dance on the gladdest, Hip pockets are the thickest, Pistol hands the slickest, The cylinder turns quickest, in Kentucky. 7. The song birds are the sweetest, The thoroughbreds are fleetest, Mountains tower proudest, Thunder peals the loudest, The landscape is the grandest And politics - the damnedest in Kentucky.
