Dolly Parton My Tennessee Mountain Home Lyrics

Last updated: 03/03/2005 11:00:00 AM

Sittin' on the front porch on a summer afternoon
In a straightback chair on two legs leaned against the wall
Watch the kids a playin' with June bugs on a string
And chase the glowin' fireflies when evening shadows fall

In my Tennessee mountain home life is as peaceful as a baby's sigh
In my Tennessee mountain home crickets are singing in the fields near by

And honeysuckle vines clings to the fence along the lane
Their fragrance makes the summer wind so sweet
And on a distant hilltop an eagle spreads its wings
And a songbird on a fencepost sings a melody

In my Tennessee mountain home...
[ fiddle ]
Walking home from church on Sunday with the one you love
Just laughing talking making future plans
And when yiz see folks ain't lookin' you might steal a kiss or two
While sittin' in the porchswing holding hands

In my Tennessee mountain home...
