Blue Kentucky Blues

This song is by Ida Cox and appears on the compilation album Ida Cox Vol. 2 1924-1925 (1995).

You can always tell when your best man don't want you around
You can always tell when your best man don't want you around
He will come home at night turn the bed upside down

My heart's full of sorrow tears come rolling down
Tears come rolling down
Because my baby was Kentucky bound

The pale moon shines down on the mountain still
The pale moon shines down on the mountain still
Way down in old Kentucky mid those high blue hills

Shine on old moon harvest moon shine on
Harvest moon shine on
Because old moon you'll be shining when I'm dead and gone

I'm going to tell my mama when I go back home
I'm going to tell my mama when I go back home
Tell her the folks up here won't let my Kentucky man alone
