Tennessee Mountain Top

Album: Sweet Southern Sugar (2017)
  • Palm trees and beautiful hips
    Man it dosen't get any better than this
    Sun settin' like fire on the Viper Room
    Old Lemmy holed up at the bar
    And Johnny Depp pickin' on an old guitar
    Man I wish old Keith would've taught em how to keep it in tune

    I came here lookin' for love
    But all I found was sex and drugs
    Strung out, broke down, homesick and thinkin' of you

    There ain't nothin' like a Tennessee mountain top
    Some straight shootin' neighbors that don't name drop
    With a preacher man prayin' for peace but still packin' a gun (you better ask somebody)
    Singing karaoke in a double wide
    With smoke so thick it'll burn your eyes
    Oh oh, my sweet Lord I'll warn ya
    Fall in love with an angel
    You'll end up in California

    High tide I felt so alive
    Until I spent six hours on the 405
    In a jacked up rocky ridge straight rollin' coal
    But then I, I turned up the radio
    And hear a bunch of that's got no soul
    All pop and hip-hop but no damn rock n' roll

    I came here lookin' for love
    But ended up on a bathroom rug
    On my knees prayin' God please see me through

    There ain't nothin' like a Tennessee mountain top
    Some straight shootin' neighbors that don't name drop
    With a preacher man prayin' for peace but still packin' a gun
    Singing karaoke in a double wide
    With smoke so thick it'll burn your eyes
    Oh oh, my sweet Lord I'll warn ya
    Fall in love with an angel
    You'll end up in California

    There ain't nothin' like a Tennessee mountain top
    Some straight shootin' neighbors that don't name drop
    With a preacher man prayin' for peace but still packin' a gun (you better ask somebody)
    Singing karaoke in a double wide
    Some sweet southern sugar right by my side
    Oh oh, my sweet Lord I'll warn ya
    Fall in love with an angel
    Fall in love with an angel, yeah
    Fall in love, fall in love, fall in love, love, love
    With an angel Writer/s: CATT GRAVITT, ROBERT RITCHIE, TIM MONTANA
