There's a lone green valley by the old Kentucky shore
Where we've whil'd many happy hours away;
A-sitting and a-singing by the little cottage door
Where dwelt my lovely Nelly Gray.
When the moon had climb'd the mountain & the stars were shining too
Then I took my lovely Nelly Gray,
And I travell'd down the river in my little red canoe
While the banjo sweetly I did play.
Oh! my eyes are getting blinded and I cannot see my way;
Hark! there's somebody knocking at the door.
I hear the angels calling and I see my Nelly Gray,
Farewell to my old Kentucky shore.
