Roll Along Kentucky Moon
Jimmie Rodgers Lyrics


Where are you
Old moon of Kentucky?
There′s somebody lonesome and blue
With nothing it seems
But memories and dreams
Waiting to whisper to you

Day is done
And here am I
Alone, and you know why
Roll along, roll along
Kentucky moon
Shed a ray of silvery light
On the one I love tonight
Roll along, roll along
Kentucky moon

You were watching on high
As we whispered goodbye
'Twas a love dream that ended too soon
But wherever you may be
Go bring her back to me
Roll along, roll along
Kentucky moon

O-de-lay-ee-o o-lay-e-o, o-lay-ee

At dawning fond hopes come to cheer me
But twilight brings sorrows anew
And night finds me here
The world sad and drear
Sending this message to you

Day is done
And here am I
Alone, and you know why
Roll along, roll along
Kentucky moon
Shed a ray of silvery light
On the one I love tonight
Roll along, roll along
Kentucky moon

You were watching on high
As we whispered goodbye
′Twas a love dream that ended too soon
But wherever you may be
Go bring her back to me
Roll along, roll along
Kentucky moon

O-de-lay-ee-o o-lay-e-ay, o-lay-ee

I love this song!!!

Lynn Kanerva

I'm 58, and i heard this a lot growing up, and his other songs, even though we only had the one album of his. My oldest brother Mike likes Jimmie Rogers. I had to hear tis again after I watched the Country music program that has been on PBS.

Lynn Kanerva

Still better than what passes for music these days.

Matt Tenute

the late and the great Ross Johnston (my grandpa) covered this song for my family growing up. Past away about 15 years ago at the tender age of 87. Dam do I wish I recorded more of his guitar playing and singing.

DG Mutt

He never recorded a bad song. He wrote the best.

Docterry

this song, and "Miss the Mississippi and You" were written by Bill Halley :) (Not to be confused with Bill Haley {with the Comets})
