Eight More Miles to Louisville Lyrics

Eight More Miles to Louisville - Grandpa Jones

Written by:LOUIS (GRANDPA) MARSHALL JONES

I've traveled over the country

Wide a seekin' fortune fair

I've been down the two coast

Lines I've traveled everywhere

From Portland east and Portland

West and back along the line

I'm goin' now to a place that's best

That old home town of mine

Eight more miles and Louisville

Will come in to my view

Eight more miles on this old

Road and I'll never more be blue

I knew some day that I'd come

Back I knew it from the start

Eight more miles to Louisville the

Home town of my heart

There's bound to be a girl

Somewhere that you like best of all

Now mine lives down in Louisville

She's long and she is tall

But she's the kind that you can't

Find a rambling through the land

I'm on my way this very day to

Win her heart and hand

Oh eight more miles and Louisville

Will come in to my view

Eight more miles on this old road

And I'll never more be blue

I knew some day that I'd come

Back I knew it from the start

Eight more miles to Louisville

The home town of my heart

Well I can picture in my mind

A place we'll call our home

A humble little hut for two

We'll never want to roam

The place that's right for that

Love site is in those bluegrass hills

Where gently flows the Ohio

By a place called Louisville

Eight more miles and Louisville

Will come in to my view

Eight more miles on this old

Road and I'll never more be blue

I knew some day that I'd come

Back I knew it from the start

Eight more miles to Louisville

The home town of my heart

Eight more miles to Louisville

 

The home town of my heart
