| Old dog Tray s ever faithful;|
Grief can not drive him away;
He is gentle, he is kind
I shall never, never find
A better friend than old dog Tray!
| Old Dog Tray. Chorus.|
| The day goes by like a shadow oer the heart,|
With sorrow where all was delight;
The time has come when the darkies have to part:
Then my old Kentucky home, good night!
| My old Kentucky Home.|
