Lyrics

Deep in the hills of East Kentucky
That’s where I come from
The boys are rough, the girls get dirty
Marching to a different drum

They may say
We are a
Peculiar people too
But one thing’s for sure
They can’t ignore
These Appalachian roots

We got soul in our grass
We put love in our shine
And we still believe
In coal in our mines
Can’t break us apart
We’re joined at the heart
It’s more than just pride
Over here on the East Kentucky Side


Mama’s word is gold in these hollers
Daddy does the best he can
Paving a way for our sons and daughters
Mining and farming this land

They may say
We are a
Peculiar people too
But one thing’s for sure
They can’t ignore
These Appalachian roots

We got soul in our grass
We put love in our shine
And we still believe
In coal in our mines
Can’t break us apart
We’re joined at the heart
It’s more than just pride
Over here on the East Kentucky Side

Break

Ain’t nothing like East Kentucky
Life is hard, but still we’re lucky
To live in a land of storybook hills
The music is good and the people are real

We got soul in our grass
We put love in our shine
And we still believe
In coal in our mines
Can’t break us apart
We’re joined at the heart
It’s more than just pride
Over here on the East Kentucky Side


We got soul in our grass
We put love in our shine
And we still believe
In coal in our mines
Can’t break us apart
We’re joined at the heart
It’s more than just pride
Over here on the East Kentucky Side
Over here on the East Kentucky Side
