Oh weel I’ve traveled o’er this country wide a seekin’ fortune fair
I’ve been down the two coast lines I’ve traveled everywhere
From Portland East and Portland West and back across the line
I’m goin’ now to a place that’s best that old home town of mine

Son eight more miles and Louisville will come in to my view
Eight more miles on this old road and I ‘ll never more be blue
Well I knew some day that I’d come back I knew it from the start
Son eight more miles to Louisville the home town of my heart

[ guitar ]
Just eight more miles and Louisville

[ guitar ]
There’s eight more miles and Louisville…
Eight more miles eight more miles
Son there’s eight more miles and Louisville
