"East Kentucky Home" as written by Christopher Stapleton and Mike Henderson....
Been up and down this lonesome highway
Coast to coast and back again
'Cause I just had to do things my way
Had to go against the wind

'Cause I've been dreaming of a girl I left behind
Lord, she had the truest heart I've ever known
And I've been looking for a world I'll never find
Ever since I left my East Kentucky Home

I can smell the wood smoke rising
Feel the wind out in the pines
See the way I left her crying
Every time I close my eyes

I've been dreaming of a girl I left behind
Lord, she had the truest heart I've ever known
And I've been looking for a world I'll never find
Ever since I left my East Kentucky Home

Think I'll get up with the sunrise
Think I'll pack my things and go
It's taken me this long to realize
The only thing I need to know

'Cause I've been dreaming of a girl I left behind
Lord, she had the truest heart I've ever known
And I've been looking for a world I'll never find
Ever since I left my East Kentucky Home
Ever since I left my East Kentucky Home
