"Old Kentucky Song" lyrics - THE OAK RIDGE BOYS

"Old Kentucky Song"
(Kix Brooks / Ed Hunnicutt)

Songs on the radio
Like 'Careless Lover' come and go
Playing today and gone tomorrow
But if they ever find a tune
Half as strong as me and you
That's all they'll ever play, over and over
'Cause honey we're staying strong

Like that old Kentucky song
A melody that lasts forever
Harmony don't get no better
On and on we were made to sing along
Playing like that old Kentucky song

So turn down the radio
And whisper to me soft and low
Words I heard the first time we were lovers
You say hold me close and let me know
You're never gonna let me go
Well I'm still close and you still know it
Well honey the love just keeps on growing strong
