You might call it sad confusion
You might even call it off
But once you called me more than just your friend
Now there's more to what I'm thinkin'
Than the Mississippi Line
And Tennessee's not the state I'm in

You call me up at midnight
To explain your whereabouts
I should've seen your love was coming to an end
And as you call from longer distances
I began to have my doubts
Still Tennessee's not the state I'm in

No, Tennessee's not the state I'm in
Satisfied is not the way I've been
I can feel my world turning
As I watch the bottle spin
Still Tennessee's not the state I'm in

Well, I could stand out on that highway
Trying to make that Nashville scene
But I think I've stretched my luck a little thin
So I walk the streets of Memphis
But I'll have you understand
That Tennessee's not the state I'm in

No, Tennessee's not the state I'm in
And down to earth is not the place I've been
I can feel my world turning
As I watch the bottle spin
Still Tennessee's not the state I'm in
No, Tennessee's not the state I'm in
