Subject(s): Kentucky


The ways of the world are a-coming -- up Cyarr!
Biled shirts and neckties,
Powder-pots and veils,
Pizen fotched-on liquor,
Doctor-pills, and ails --
Hit's a sight, all the brash that's a-coming -- up Cyarr!

The ways of the mountains are passing -- up Cyarr!
Moonshine stills and manhood,
Gear to weave and spin,
Good old Reg'lar Baptists
Preaching hell for sin.
Far'well to the old ways a-passing -- up Cyarr!

The ways of the world will be holding -- up Cyarr!
Sorry ways, the old ways,
They've a call to go.
Only, when you're grave-bound,
Changing's allus slow.
Old folks will bide by the old ways -- up Cyarr.
