  • Lyrics
  • This track is from Out Among the Stars, a posthumous studio album containing recordings from lost 1980s sessions with veteran countrypolitan producer Billy Sherrill that were discovered by Johnny Cash's son John Carter Cash in 2012. Carter Cash told The Guardian: "My father was a true patriot, and Tennessee exhibits this. He really did love the state he lived in. Tennessee meant a lot to my dad and through his years here he stayed true. Lived in Hendersonville, Tennessee, from 1967 to the end of his life."
