Back to Tennessee

Album: Back to Tennessee (2009)
  • Fancy cars and diamond rings
    I seen all kinds of shiny things
    I should be feelin' like a king
    But lord I don't

    Great big towns, so full of users
    Make a million, still a loser
    Some may bet on you to win
    Most hope you won't

    Livin' wild, ain't no mercy being free
    When it brings you to your knees
    Can't keep lying

    I've seen the road now
    I know just what I need
    To find my way back to Tennessee
    I'm going home now
    To Southern, is so sweet
    And find my way back to Tennessee

    I was only seventeen
    I lived behind my beauty queen
    I turned my back on everything
    And everyone

    Rooms with lots of pretty faces
    Still don't fill the empty spaces
    Wanderin' where Amazing Grace is
    There is none, no

    Now I know, there's no comfort in this world
    God I miss that hometown girl
    Want to hold her

    I'm on the road now
    I know just what I need
    To find my way back to Tennessee
    I'm coming home now
    To Southern, is so sweet
    And find my way back to Tennessee

    All this time I was chasing after dreams
    It was right in front of me
    I was lost without her

    I'm on the road now
    I know just what I need
    To find my way back to Tennessee
    I'm coming home now
    To Southern, is so sweet
    And find my way back to you and me
    Find my way back to Tennessee Writer/s: Billy Cyrus, Matthew Wilder, Tamara Dunn
