"You and Tennessee"

Like a sweet rippling mountain stream

Goes the sound of the banjo on Cripple Creek

Never beginning never ending just rippling on and on

So does the land just ripple on and on

As a heart gets soft on a woman so can the heart get soft on the land

And to fall in love with a woman as well as the land is to surely be in love

[ ac.guitar ]

I stayed away too long I know and every day was slow to go

Every night I dreamed I was here it's been a mighty lonely year

Every mile I needed you I kinda hope that you needed me too

Everywhere I saw your face around every town I was in

This old familiar place welcomed me again

Back to where I belonged to be back to you and Tennessee

Back to you and Tennessee

[ ac.guitar ]

Beside the Cumberland River where the grass is soft and sweet

We ran across the fields of cedar hiding from the noisy streets

And when the leaves fell from the cold the stars were silver the moon was gold

I said it's yours with love from me

I'm planting my roots in this ground and when they look for me I'll be found

With something that is part of me you and Tennessee

Back with you and Tennessee
