  • Kentucky woman
    She shines with her own kind of light
    She'd look at you once
    And a day that's all wrong
    Looks all right
    And I love her
    God knows, I love her

    Kentucky woman
    If she get to know you
    She goin' to own you
    Kentucky woman

    Well, she ain't the kind
    Makes heads turn at the drop of her name
    But something inside
    That she's got turn you on just the same
    And she loves me
    God knows, she loves me

    Kentucky woman
    If she get to know you
    She goin' to own you
    Kentucky woman

    I don't want much
    The good Lord's earth beneath my feet
    A gentle touch
    From that one girl, and life is
    Sweet and good
    Ain't no doubt
    I'm talkin' about

    Kentucky woman
    If she get to know you
    She goin' to own you
    Kentucky woman

  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyToday {December 17th, 2015} the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame announced its 2016 inductees, the newest members will be Deep Purple, Chicago, Steve Miller, Cheap Trick and NWA; and they will be inducted into the HoF on April 8th, 2016 in New York City...
    And exactly forty seven years earlier on December 17th, 1968 Deep Purple's covered version of "Kentucky Woman" was in its third of three weeks at #38 on Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart, and, as mention above, that would also be its peak position on the Top 100...
    Between 1968 and 1974 the British quintet had seven Top 100 records; two made the Top 10 and both those records peaked at #4, "Hush" in 1968 and "Smoke on the Water" in 1973.
  • Joe from Grants Pass, OrRitchie with hand claps ? HAHAHA!!!!
  • Reg from Kemptville, On, -I generally tend to like originals far more than covers. (I often hate cover versions.)
    This is an exception. I feel that Deep Purple's cover is superior to Neil's.
