Hey [C] bury me, [F] along the big sandy
[C] Down in those Blue Grass [G] mountains.
[C] Rest my soul in those [F] hills of coal
[C] Until this old [G] land doesnât [C] tremble.
[C] Donât you [F] mourn for me when my [C] soul is free
No, [F] woman, donât you [G] cry.
Just [C] bury me, [F] along the big sandy,
[C] Under the [G] blue Kentucky [C] sky.
This old [C] town of sin, itâs [F] about to do me in
I Donât [C] know how much I can [G] stand.
With my [C] knees on the street and my [F] heart at their feet
Iâm [C] forced to flee from [G] Satanâs hand.
When I came to this land I was strong and could stand,
But now Iâve somehow gone astray.
But I still see the truth and the teaching of my youth
And I know the Lord ainât turned away.
