      About "Sweet Kentucky Ham"

      Lyrics for Rosemary Clooney - "Sweet Kentucky Ham"

      It's 6 P.M., supper time in South Bend, Indiana
      And you figure what the hell you can eat in your motel
      So you order up room service on the phone
      And you watch the local news and eat alone

      You've gotta take what little pleasures you can find
      When you got sweet Kentucky ham on your mind, on your mind
      Nothin' but sweet Kentucky ham on your mind

      It's 10 PM, they're rollin' up the sidewalk in Milwaukee
      And the only place to eat, is just across the street
      So you sit there with a bowl of navy beans
      And you turn the pages of magazine

      And you feel you wanna quit while you're behind
      'Cause you've got sweet Kentucky ham on your mind, on your mind
      Nothin' but sweet Kentucky ham on your mind

      And you feel like you're forever on the phone
      Half past 10, let it ring
      Dial again, same damn thing
      And you're really getting hungry for some choc
      Grab a shower, take a walk

      It's 3 A.M., they're servin' up last call in Cincinnati
      But it's still a night time town
      If you know your way around
      And despite yourself you find you're wide awake

      And you're staring at your scrambled eggs and steak
      And you must admit your heart's about to break
      When you think of what you left behind
      And you've got sweet Kentucky ham on your mind, on your mind
      Nothin' but sweet Kentucky ham on your mind
