156th Anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg – July 2, 2019


Okay, were going to count down from three
okay? Alright. Three
Two One There’s a low, green, valley cross the old
Kentucky shore Where I’ve whiled many happy hours away,
sitting and a singing by that little cabin door
Where lived my darling Nellie Gray Oh, my poor Nellie Gray, they have taken you
away I’ll never see my darling, anymore
I’m sitting by the river and I’m weeping all the day
Cause’ you’re gone from the old Kentucky shore When the moon is in the mountains and the
stars are shining too I’d take my darling Nellie Gray
we’d float down the river in my little red canoe
and my banjo so softly I would play Oh, my poor Nellie Gray, they have taken you
away I’ll never see my darling, anymore
I’m sitting by the river and I’m weeping all the day
Cause’ you’re gone from the old Kentucky shore My eyes are going blinder, I cannot see my
way Hark someone is knocking at my door
I hear the angel calling, I see my Nellie Gray
Oh farewell to the old Kentucky shore Oh my darling Nellie Gray up in heaven we
will stay They’ll never take you from me anymore
I’m coming, coming, coming, as the angels clear the way
Oh farewell to the old Kentucky shore Yes farewell to the old Kentucky shore
