Lyrics

Lyrics:
Hear the music playing an old familiar strain, Dixieland is saying Come back to me again Back where glances and fond romances are mingled with perfume of roses; Memories are turning to days of long ago, And your heart is yearning for one you used to know; Way down yonder, again you wander, It's all a Kentucky Dream Sweet mem'ry girl Sweetheart of yore Sometimes when I'm lonely and blue, No one will do; No one but you, dear, Your voice far away Comes back to say: Kiss me then in fancy I seem, With my Kentucky Dream. Hear the music playing an old familiar strain, Dixieland is saying Come back to me again Back where glances and fond romances are mingled with perfume of roses, Memories are turning to days of long ago, And your heart is yearning for one you used to know; Naught can sever, you're mine forever, My wondrous Kentucky Dream.

Content Disclaimer

The derogatory terms, images, and ideas that appear in some of this sheet music are not condoned by the University of Mississippi. They do represent the attitudes of a number of Americans at the times the songs were published. As such, it is hoped that the sheet music in this collection can aid students of music, history, and other disciplines to better understand popular American music and racial stereotypes from the 19th- and early 20th-centuries.

Kentucky Dream / music by S.R. Henry; words by Agnetta Floris and D. Onivas; translated by Frank H. Warden
