Tennessee Lyrics

by Johnny Cash

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 Tennessee
