  • Lyrics
  • I was born across the river
    In the mountains where I call home
    Lord, times were good there
    Don't know why I ever roamed

    Oh, Tennessee River and a mountain man,
    We get together anytime we can
    Oh, Tennessee River and a mountain man,
    We play together in Mother Nature's band

    Me and my woman's done made our plans
    On the Tennessee River, walkin' hand in hand
    Gonna raise a famly, Lord, settle down
    Where peace and love can still be found

    Oh, Tennessee River and a mountain man,
    We get together anytime we can
    Oh, Tennessee River and a mountain man,
    We play together in Mother Nature's bandWriter/s: RANDY OWEN
