My Tennessee girl is all alone
She sits by her window with the telephone
She's waiting to see me or just to hear my voice
My beautiful girl in Tennessee

A few souvenirs of my Tennessee home
Those sweet Memphis blues
My fine blue suede shoes
Tobacco and moonshine
Up those smoky hills
Oh, Tennessee girl
You're my serenade

California bound I packed up my gear
I said, "Darling, I'll come back for you next year
But please understand - I got to make out it here
There's nothing for me in Tennessee"

Then a stranger I met on the Arizona line - he said
"Listen my brother - you're wasting your time
There ain't nothing out here like what you left behind
No Tennessee love you're gonna find"


My Tennessee girl - she's waiting for me
In the house on the hill - under the old apple trees
She's dreaming of dancing and kissing me
I'm on my way back to Tennessee
