Cumberland Falls, Mammoth Cave.
Cumberland Gap, Man O War‘s grave.
Churchill Downs, tall spires two.
Kentucky proud, our grass is blue.

Frankfort, where we make our laws.
Bust of greats, in hallowed halls.
Southern Bells, dressed so fine.
Exotic hats, one of a kind.
Kentucky bred, Kentucky true.
Kentucky proud, our grass is blue.

Thundering hooves, a terrible sound.
Secretariat, a record breaking triple crown.
Keeneland, future greats, pass in review.
Kentucky proud, our grass is blue.

Kentucky, where Lincoln was born.
Supplying the world, with liquid corn.
Lake Cumberland, Mountain Dew.
Kentucky proud, our grass is blue.

Kentucky, the Cardinals and Wildcats.
Hillrich and Bradsby,
Louisville Slugger bats.
Jim Bunning pitched a perfect game, a big issue.
Kentucky proud, our grass is blue.

World famous, Muhamed Ali,

Country music stars, more than a few,
Kentucky proud, our grass is blue.
