Girl Named Tennessee

Album: The Outsiders (2009)
  • They say this lasts forever
    That's just what I'm afraid of
    I'll never dance like this again
    She smiled like a Georgia summer
    She laughs with the sound of thunder
    I wanna dance like this again

    I'm not the marryin' kind
    I've said a thousand times
    But I've never danced like this before
    She's got them pretty little shoes
    And I love the way she moves
    I wanna dance like this again

    I was free and far from home
    I was young and on my own
    I was blind as I could be
    Thinkin' love was not for me
    Till the night I met the girl named Tennessee

    Lights came down
    and the room spun slow
    Started sayin' she had to go
    Don't go baby I didn't get your name
    She said Don't worry
    I did not say

    Oh she danced away with my
    Heart and soul
    Who she was I will
    never know

    Danced away with my
    Hopes and dreams
    My sweet girl from Tennessee Writer/s: NATHANIEL RINEHART, WILLIAM RINEHART
