Charley Pride Tennessee Girl Lyrics

Last updated:

Well I left home at a crack of dawn just about a year ago
I thumbed my way cross the USA and I learned a lot I didn't know
The Primised Land that I thought I'd find was always just ahead of me
Until one day when I realized I left it back in Tennessee
And that's why I'm going back to my Tennessee girl and a Tennessee way of life
And I'm gonna ask my Tennessee girl to be my Tennessee wife

Tonight I slept in a hobo camp workin' out like dog by day
I never got enough to get ahead just enough to make my way
Cold and tired when the evening come all I had to ease my mind
Was thinkin' bout the place I started from and the girl that I left behind
And that's why I'm going back...

There ain't no place that I been at all that I would gonna settle in
And every town that I travel through made me wanna go home again
The green green grass and the rollin' hills seem to keep a callin' me
Back to the place where I was born and the girl that I long to see
And that's why I'm going back...
I'm going back...
