ALL THAT'S KENTUCKY
Ole Kentucky saw that day
All her native pride retained,
Couldn't hold her joy in sway
When they knowed the race was gained-
Ole man Harper's gone to rest,
Sleepin' whar the bluegrass blows,
Ten Broeck's slab is on the crest
Whar the merry daisy grows.
-James Tandy Ellis.
"God might have made a better State than Old
Kentucky, but certainly He never did."
-Karl D. Kelly, paraphrasing from Izaac Walton.
