kentucky lyrics – edwin mccain

the night before your wedding
i dreamed what i would say
i beg you for forgiveness
for all the mess i made

i dreamed that you were gracious,
i dreamed you wished me well
i dreamed that you were vicious,
you d*mned me straight to h*ll

but oh sweet kentucky
no matter where i land
i was just a boy for you
and he will be your man

and i was just a boy for you
and he will be your man

i’d tell you that i’m lonely
and fame has let me down
living like a stranger,
traveling town to town

and all my aspirations
don’t amount to much
the wine and the women
are such a shameful crutch

but oh sweet kentucky
no matter where i land
cause i was just a boy for you
and he will be your man

and i was just a boy for you
and he will be your man

i know you will be happy
and i’ll be in the band
cause i was just a boy for you
and he will be your man

and i was just a boy for you
and he will be your man
