The Battle Hymn of Kentucky

My eyes have seen the glory of the coming of Steve Beshear,
He is trampling out the corruption where the pardons are signed in fear;
He hath loosed the faithful shining of the truth that Fletcher sear-
His truth is marching on.

I have seen him burn the midnight oil in a hundred county seats,
They have build-ed him a campaign on every Kentucky street;
I can read his righteous platforms that the voters are eager to greet-
His day is marching on.

He has sounded forth the issues that shall never sound retreat,
He is sifting out the hearts of voters to take back the Governor's seat;
O be swift my friends to answer him! be jubilant to meet-
Steve Beshear is marching on.

In the beauty of Western Kentucky he was born by the lake,
With true conviction in his heart that's not for sale or fake;
Fletcher lied to make men holy, Beshear will fight for the Commonwealth's sake-
While Steve Beshear is marching on.
