  • Mama, I'm callin', I've got some news
    Don't ya tell daddy, he'll blow a fuse
    Don't worry, I'm doin' okay
    I know you raised me to know right from wrong
    It ain't what you think and I'm still writin' songs
    Just never thought I'd see the day
    I've never felt this way

    I met somebody and he's got blue eyes
    He opens the door and he don't make me cry
    He ain't from where we're from
    But he feels like home, yeah
    He's got me doin' things I've never done

    In Georgia, they call it a sin
    I'm wearing Tennessee orange for him

    Took me to Knoxville last Saturday
    And I wore the hat on his dash to the game
    It sure wasn't Athens but I
    Fell for him under those Neyland lights

    I met somebody and he's got blue eyes
    He opens the door and he don't make me cry
    He ain't from where we're from
    But he feels like home, yeah
    He's got me doin' things I've never done

    In Georgia they call it a sin
    I'm wearing Tennessee orange for him

    Mama, forgive me, I like him a lot
    Hell, I'm learning the words to Old Rocky Top
    And he's got a smile that makes me forget
    I've always looked better in red

    But I met somebody and he's got blue eyes
    He opens the door and he don't make me cry
    He ain't from where we're from
    But he feels like home, yeah
    He's got me doin' things I've never done

    I met somebody and he's got blue eyes
    He opens the door and he don't make me cry
    He ain't from where we're from
    But he feels like home, yeah
    He's got me doin' things I've never done

    In Georgia, they call it a sin
    And I still want the Dawgs to win
    But I'm wearing Tennessee orange for him
    I'm wearing Tennessee orange for him Writer/s: Ben Williams, David Fanning, Megan Moroney, Paul Jenkins
