Louisville
Dwight Yoakam Lyrics


I've been waiting here in Louisville
Lots of time to kill, waiting here for you
I've had to get a job in Louisville
Cause my hotel bill is six weeks overdue

You called to say you were leaving
That Kentucky was half away
I love this old river town but I never meant to stay
I've been waiting here in Louisville
You got until my bus leaves for L.A.

Let's not fool ourselves there's something wrong
You don't belong to me now I can tell
Six long weeks it took, but it's a game
You never meant to come to Louisville

You come to see here believing
That Kentucky was half away
I love this old river town but I never meant to stay
I've been waiting here in Louisville
You got until my bus leaves for L.A.

You come to see here believing
That Kentucky was half away
I love this old river town but I never meant to stay
Six long weeks this took but it's a game
You never meant to come here anyway

I've been waiting here in Louisville
You got until my bus leaves for L.A.
You got until my bus leaves for L.A.

It depends on where you are from in KY or Southern Indiana how you pronounce Louisville. In eastern Ky they do pronounce Louisville as Louie-ville. I have lived all over this state from Owensboro to Middlesbrough I also been all over the great state from Fulton KY to Pikeville KY. I do live here in the bluegrass

Nicolas Martin

Most common casual pronunciation in Lexington: Luhville.

Mary Ward

Peter Parrish

Say it with me folks Lou-Ah-vull...thats the way its pronounced in ky...for songs sake its pronounced to rhyme....a different way. I got family from there and lived there at one point

James Bowen

My dad was born in Floyd County, Kentucky & raised in Knott County, Kentucky and he pronounced it Lou-uh-vul. He insisted he was right.
