Tennessee Submit Correct Lyrics

You have heard and read about the state of Tennessee
Down in the southern states is where I wanna be
Where the valleys are so green and mountains are so tall
You will know just what I mean when you hear them say "You all"

Tennessee
(Tennessee)
I hear you callin' me
(I hear you callin' me)
The home of Davy Crockett in the hills of Tennessee

When I was a little boy around the folks at home
My mama always said to me, "Jimmy, please don't roam"
Now that I have straight away my heart is full of woe
When I think of Mom and Dad that's where I wanna go

Tennessee
(Tennessee)
I hear you callin' me
(I hear you callin' me)
The home of Davy Crockett in the hills of Tennessee

If ever I get back to that state of Tennessee
I tell you there'll be no more roamin' for me
There lives a sweetheart who said, "She'd marry me"
As soon as I get back to that state of Tennessee

Tennessee
(Tennessee)
I hear you calling me
(I hear you calling me)
The home of Davy Crockett in the hills of Tennessee
