Blue Moon of Kentucky
Bill Monroe and the Bluegrass Boys Lyrics


Blue moon of Kentucky, keep on shining
Shine on the one that's gone and proved untrue
Blue moon of Kentucky, keep on shining
Shine on the one that's gone and left me blue

It was on a moonlight night
The star is shining bright
And they whispered from on high
Your love has said good-bye

Blue moon of Kentucky, keep on shining
Shine on the one that's gone and said good-bye

Blue moon of Kentucky, keep on shining
Shine on the one that's gone and proved untrue
Blue moon of Kentucky, keep on shining
Shine on the one that's gone and left me blue

It is on a moonlight night
The stars shining bright
They whispered from high
Your love has said good-bye

Blue moon of Kentucky, keep on shining
Shine on the one that's gone and said good-bye

Blue moon of Kentucky keep on shining
Shine on the one that's gone and proved untrue
Blue moon of Kentucky keep on shining
Shine on the one that's gone and left me blue
It was on a moonlight night
The stars were shining bright
When they whispered from on high
Your love has said good-bye
Blue moon of Kentucky keep on shining
Shine on the one that's gone and said good-bye

Luna azul de Kentucky seguir brillando
Brillar en el que se ha ido y demostró ser falsa
Luna azul de Kentucky seguir brillando
Brillar en el que se ha ido y me dejó triste
Fue en una noche de luna
Las estrellas estaban brillando
Cuando susurraban desde lo alto
Su amor ha dicho adiós
Luna azul de Kentucky seguir brillando
Brillar en el que se ha ido y dijo adiós

I wanted to learn the melody of this song, note for note.
So I keyed in the title and listened to several artists sing it.
There was a lot of variety in the notes the people sang.
So I decided to listen to the notes from the man who wrote it.

I ended up compromising and doing some original notes and some the way
others do it.

I've done this for other songs and it seems the older the song
the more likely it is to vary from the original.

I sang this at my dad's side, not long before he passed on. The pain is still so fresh. I bet he and Bill are having a time...

This is the true version of a great song.
When I was about 16 years old, in 1975, the national danish radio had one hour each Wednesday with 'The country Express'
I taped everything on the cassette, and this was, and still is, one of my favorites. 👍💓🇩🇰
