Tennessee

Album: Out Among the Stars (2014)
  • Mama I guess you heard
    I got married in Tennessee
    I got a blue-eyed girl
    Who thinks the world of me
    We got a cabin in the country
    And a creek that rolls nearby
    And a dog that won't even bark at a firefly
    Our clothes just hang outside our backdoor
    And there's a tire that swings in the air
    Ten feet or more
    There's a church I can't seem to find
    On Sunday mornin'
    But I sure found the place that I belong in

    And we wear blue jeans
    And big green beans
    Spend the summertime naturally high
    By chopping wood, the next one or five
    Saving our money for the county fair
    George Jones' supposed to be there
    We got forty acres of corn in the ground
    Tennessee taters we sell by the pound
    Proud as we can be
    To live in Tennessee

    Mama you and dad have got to come stay with us sometime
    I know you love that sweet little gal of mine
    You and her could talk about babies
    Make some home made apple pie
    While me and dad could take a walk
    Maybe talk about old times

    And we wear blue jeans
    And big green beans
    Spend the summertime naturally high
    By chopping wood, the next one or five
    Saving our money for the county fair
    George Jones' supposed to be there
    We got forty acres of corn in the ground
    Tennessee taters we sell by the pound
    Proud as we can be
    That we live in Tennessee

    We are proud as we can be
    To be from Tennessee
    We are proud as we can be
    To be from TennesseeWriter/s: JOHNNY CASH
