You left me for the bright lights of the town
A country boy set out to see the world
Remember when those city lights shine down
That big old moon shines on your Kentucky girl.

I swear I love you
By the moon above you
How bright is it shinin' in your world
Some morning when you wake up all alone
Just come on home to your blue Kentucky girl.

--- Instrumental ---

Don't wait to bring great riches home to me
I need no diamond rings or fancy pearls
Just bring yourself, you're all I'll ever need
That's good enough for this blue Kentucky girl.

I swear I love you by the stars above you
How bright is it shinin' in your world
Some mornin' when you wake up all alone
Just come on home to your blue Kentucky girl...

. . .


In your haste you left and said you'd be returnin'
In my sorrow I forgot to ask you when
In my lonely room I sit and count the hours every minute hopin'
I'll look up and you'll come walkin' in.

For then and only then will I stop cryin'
And this aching breaking heart of mine will mend
Not until I feel your arms around me
Will I be happy and I live for then and only then.

--- Instrumental ---

All that's left inside my heart is just your echo
And the tiny thread of hope to which I cling
But if I keep holding on maybe some day
You'll remember where you left me and come back for me again.

For then and only then will I stop cryin'
And this aching breaking heart of mine will mend
Not until I feel your arms around me
Will I be happy and I live for then and only then...

. . .


At my door the leaves are falling
A cold wild wind will come
Sweethearts walk by together
And I still miss someone.

I never got over those blue eyes
I see them everywehere
I miss those arms that held me
When all the love was there.

I wonder if he's sorry
For leavin' what we'd begun
There's someone for me somewhere
And I still miss someone.

There's someone for me somewhere
And I still miss someone...

. . .


You say you'd like to be with me tonight
Someplace where we can hide from your world
But if you're ashamed to show me up in daylight
Then I can't see why I should be your night girl.

I guess you think I'll be your poor girl price
Who'll never fit into your social world
But if you're too good for me in your own eyes
Then I can't see why I should be your night girl.

You were born into a wealthy family
I was born into a world of poverty
So if you're too proud to have me in your world
Then I can't see why I should be your night girl.

--- Instrumental ---

You were born into a wealthy family
I was born into a world of poverty
So if you're too proud to have me in your world
Then I can't see why I should be your night girl...

Love's been here and gone
But the mem'ry keeps holding on
Now I know how I'd be if I can leave
Through this love's been here and gone.

When there's love your heart is strong
But it weakens when love goes wrong
Now I've known that power dealt the parting hour
Love's been here and gone.

I've loved once but never again
A closed heart just won't let love in
Hopin' only to you, oh, what can I do
Love's been here and gone.

--- Instrumental ---

I've loved once but never again
A closed heart just won't let love in
Hopin' only to you, oh, what can I do
Love's been here and gone...

. . .


I've been up to the top of a heartbreak mountain
I've been down in the valley of the blues
I've been down the road of loneliness and back again
And I've got farther to go than I've been.

I've been down in the dust of broken mem'ries
I've been up on the clouds of happiness
I've seen many a glass held high in the house of sin
And I've got farther to go than I've been.

I've got farther to go I've got things to forget
I've got things I remember about you
I've been up when you told me that you love me
I went down when you told me we were through.

Cried until my eyes would dry then I cried again
And I've got farther to go than I've been.

Yes, I've got farther to go than I've been...

. . .


Well, I feel tears wellin' up cold and deep
Inside like my heart's sprung a big break
And a stab of loneliness sharp and painful
That I may never shake.

Now you might say that I was takin' it hard
That he wrote me off with a call
But don't you wager that I'll hide the sorrow
When I may break right down and bawl

Now the race is on
And here comes pride
Up the backstretch
Heartaches are going to the inside
My tears are holdin' back
They're tryin' not to fall
lMy heart's out of the runnin'
True love scratched for another's sake
The race is on and it looks like
Heartaches and the winner loses all.

--- Instrumental ---

One day I ventured in love never once suspectin'
What the final result would be
How I lived in fear of waking up each morning
And findin' that you're gone from me

'Cause there's ache and pain in my heart
For today was the one that I hated to face
Somebody new came up to win him
And I came out in second place.

Now the race is on
And here comes pride
Up the backstretch
Heartaches are going to the inside
My tears are holdin' back
They're tryin' not to fall
lMy heart's out of the runnin'
True love scratched for another's sake
The race is on and it looks like
Heartaches and the winner loses all...

. . .


I know that I won't forget you
For I've loved you too much, for too long
Though you don't want me now
I'll still love you till the breath in my body is gone.

That's how it is with me and
You'll always be the only love I ever knew
I'll forget many things in my lifetime
But darling, I won't forget you.

--- Instrumental ---

That's how it is with me and
You'll always be the only love I ever knew
I'll forget many things in my lifetime
But darling, I won't forget you...

(Loretta Lynn)

Well here you come
And I know what I'm gonna say
My mind's made up
And I'm a leavin' you today.

Well, I'm tired of askin' you where you've been
I'm tired of all this mis'ry I'm in
Two steps forward
And six steps back again.

Well, my clothes're packed
And I'm a headin' for the door
Don't look for me back
'Cause I won't be back no more.

Well, I may think of you now and then
But don't hold your breath cause I don't know when
Two steps forward
And six steps back again.

Two steps forward and six steps back
You think I didn't want to go
These tears in my eyes they're not so real
I'm just cuttin' on a show.

I'm leavin' this town and that's for certain
Not much I ain't a cryin', not much I ain't a hurtin'
Two steps forward
And six steps back again.

--- Instrumental ---

Two steps forward and six steps back
You think I didn't want to go
These tears in my eyes they're not so real
I'm just cuttin' on a show.

I'm leavin' this town and that's for certain
Not much I ain't a cryin', not much I ain't a hurtin'
Two steps forward
And six steps back again.

Yeah, two steps forward
And six steps back again...

. . .


Send me the pillow that you dream on
Don't you know that I still care for you
Send me the pillow that you dream on
So darling, I can dream on it too.

Each night while I'm sleeping oh, so lonely
I share your love in dreams that once were true
Send me the pillow that you dream on
So darling, I can dream on it too.

--- Instrumental ---

I've waited so long for you to write me
But just a mem'ry's all that's left of you
Send me the pillow that you dream on
So darling, I can dream on it too...

. . .


(I know we've reached the beginning of the end)

I know your love is growing cold
For your kiss is barely warm
It's like the quiet before the night
It's like the calm before the storm.

When we're kissing, something's missing
And things aren't like they've been
I know we've reached
The beginning of the end.

The beginning of the end for you and me
I love you but I've lost you I can see
I don't know who I've lost you to
I don't know where or why or when
I know we've reached
The beginning of the end.

I know we've reached
The beginning of the end...

. . .


Today I'm like a leaf in autumn
Never again to know the spring
Today my heart is at rock bottom sorrow
Nothing else could bring.

But the words you told me just today
You said I'm only in your way
You left me and what could I say
For my world ended today.

--- Instrumental ---

All the words you told me just today
You said I'm only in your way
I'm lost, I'll never find my way
For my world ended today...
