Lyrics

Tennessee

Am
Oh Tennessee

You were calling after me
D
And I was right on time

I was first in line
Am
With the key

Hold there mama
Don’t come calling after me
Cause I am going down
Oh I’m going down
To Tennessee

E
Oh the north is where I laid

For the first half of my life
D
And now the south is what I crave

And where I know I’ll get it right
Am
This time

Oh Tennessee
You were calling after me
And I was right on time
I was first in line
With the key

Hold there mama
Don’t come calling after me
Cause I am going down
Oh I’m going down
To Tennessee

Oh the north is where I laid
For the first half of my life
And now the south is what I crave
And where I know I’ll get it right
This time

D
People asking me

Where you going
Am
Why you wanna leave

D
I say Tennessee
E
Cause this city didn’t hold

What I was told
D
And the promises made

Always came too late
E
And the fortune and fame
D
Never found it’s way to me
Am
But maybe own in Tennessee

Solo over verse and chorus

People asking me
Where you going
Why you wanna leave
I say Tennessee
Cause this city didn’t hold
What I was told
And the promises made
Always came too late
And the fortune and fame
Never found it’s way to me
But maybe own in Tennessee

Am
Tennessee
Tennessee
Tennessee
Tennessee
