Louisville Roll Lyrics

I'm on a Louisville roll, going down, down, down
Down to the Ohio, just to knock around
You know I met a girl from Knoxville TownShe had bright red curls and her eyes were brown
I fell in love at first sight, yes I saw the light
But she did not agree, laughed at me, oh noThis story has been told before
Since days before the silver war
I'm just a poor lost soul, on a Louisville rollThe only girl who touched my heart
She took and tore it all apart
I'm just a poor lost soul, on a Louisville rollI loved a girl from Knoxville Town, from Knoxville, Tennessee
Don't know why she did not love me
All my life I could not see
I just know she broke my heart
Broke it for the very first timeGo down you Knoxville girl, you cannot be mine
you cannot be mine
You cannot be mine

Enjoy the lyrics !!!
