Eight More Miles To Louisville

Lyrics Shared By: Jennifer

I’ve traveled over this country wide a seeking fortune fair
Up and down the 2 coast line to travel everywhere
From Portland East to Portland West and back along the line
I’m a going back to the place that’s best, an old hometown of mine

Oh, eight more miles to Louisville will come into my view
Eight more miles on this old road and I’ll never more be blue
I knew someday that I’d come back I knew it from the start
Eight more miles to Louisville, the hometown of my heart

There’s bound to be a boy somewhere that you like best of all
Now mine lives down in Louisville, he’s long and he is tall
But he’s the kind that you can’t find a roaming through this land
I’m on my way this very day to win his heart and hand

Oh, eight more miles to Louisville will come into my view
Eight more miles on this old road and I’ll never more be blue
I knew someday that I’d come back I knew it from the start
Eight more miles to Louisville, the hometown of my heart

Now I can picture in my mind the place we’ll call our home
A humble, little spot for two, we’ll never want to roam
The place that’s right for that love site is in them bluegrass hills
Where nearby flows the Ohio by a place called Louisville

Oh, eight more miles to Louisville will come into my view
Eight more miles on this old road and I’ll never more be blue
I knew someday that I’d comeback I knew it from the start
Eight more miles to Louisville, the hometown of my heart
A rig-a-tig-tig A rig-a-tig-tig A rig-a-tig-tig-tig tig!
