It's not just a boat. It's a time machine. The Belle of Louisville, once called the Idle Wild, celebrated her 100th birthday in 2014. The most widely-traveled river steamboat in American history now spends her days as a dinner cruise in Louisville, Kentucky. So, come on, and take a trip back in time on the Louisville Belle!

Lyrics

Take a trip back in time with me
Down the Ohio
A moonlight cruise filled with history
All aboard let’s go

On the Belle
The Louisville Belle
Moving on this steam driven ride
Drift along the Bluegrass riverside

Once on the Mississippi
With the USO
Now a big band ferry
All aboard let’s go

On the Belle
The Louisville Belle
Moving on this steam driven ride
Drift along the Bluegrass riverside

Break

Rolling, rolling, rolling since one nine fourteen
That Idlewild keeps blowing off steam
Fall in love with all the sights to see
There’s no better place to be

Than On the Belle
The Louisville Belle
Moving on this steam driven ride
Drift along the Bluegrass riverside
On the Belle
The Louisville Belle
Moving on this steam driven ride
Drift along the Bluegrass riverside
Drift along, drift along the Bluegrass riverside
Drift along the Bluegrass riverside
