Another Message from a Lonely Old Woman

on April 11, 2020

While I was sitting in my room with only my cat today, a song I once knew popped into my head.  Below are the words I sang. Are they correct? Please let me know. I am out of touch with the real world.

 

Oh the sun shines bright on my old Kentucky home

Tis summer and the darkies are gay

Oh the world seems bright

While the birds sing happy all the day

 

Weep no more my lady

Oh weep no more today

For the sun shines bright on my old Kentucky home

On my old Kentucky home far away

 

Please excuse me for sending this message.  I am alone every day, so I need to make contact with people I know or I will go nuts. Do you think the world  will ever get normal again?

Joanne

    Oh, the sun shines bright on my old Kentucky home
    ‘Tis summer, the old folks are gay
    Where the corn top’s ripe and the meadow’s in the bloom
    While the birds make music all the day
    Weep no more, my lady
    Oh, weep no more today
    We’ll sing one song
    For my old Kentucky home
    For my old Kentucky home, far away
    Well the young folks roll all around the cabin floor
    They’re merry, all happy and bright
    By-and-by hard times will come a-knocking at my door
    Then my old Kentucky home, goodnight
    Weep no more, my lady
    No, weep no more today
    We’ll sing one song
    For my old Kentucky home
    For my old Kentucky home, far away
    Weep no more, my lady
    Oh, weep no more today
    We’ll sing one song
    For my old Kentucky home
    For my old Kentucky home, far away
    For my old Kentucky home, far away

    That’s a beautiful song, Joanne. I have a son for you. It is the Governor (former) of Kentucky. After every University of Kentucky basketball game, he sings this song. He used to. I enjoy hearing from you. Have a wonderful Easter. D
