[Verse 1]

E                                                     F#7
Now there are folks who like to brag about where they came from
    B7                                   E
But when they start that stuff I let 'em be
                                  F#7
But it makes me feel like I wanna brag some
   B7                                       E
To know that I come from the state of Tennessee


[Chorus]

E                                    B7
Let's give old Tennessee credit for music
                                     E
As they play it up in Nashville everyday
                                    A
Let's give old Tennessee credit for music
        B7                            E
As they play it in that old Hillbilly way


[Verse 2]

E                           F#7
Mister Red Foley came from Kentucky
           B7                           E
Now Ernest Tubb down in Texas don't you see
                                   F#7
But if all you folks out there can remember
       B7                          E
Mister Eddy Arnold came from Tennessee


[Verse 3]

E                                              F#7
They make bombs they say that can blow up our world dear
       B7                         E
Well a country boy like me I will agree
                                    F#7
But if all you folks out there will remember
     B7                                  E
They made the first atomic bomb in Tennessee
