Charley Pride
Tennessee Girl 
By Charlie Pride

Capo 1

     C                F             G                  C 
Well I left home at a crack of dawn just about a year ago
  C                        F         G                      C
I thumbed my way cross the USA and I learned a lot I didn't know
    C                    F                    G                    C
The Promised Land that I thought I'd find was always just ahead of me
  C                  F           G                    C  
Until one day when I realized I left it back in Tennessee

           C                        G
And that's why I'm going back to my Tennessee girl 
      F                C
And a Tennessee way of life
    C                G
And I'm gonna ask my Tennessee girl 
   F               C
To be my Tennessee wife

By night I slept in a hobo camp workin' odd jobs 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


Key change
      D                     G                A                    D 
There ain't no place that I been at all that I would gonna settle in
     D                G                      A              D
And every town that I travel through made me wanna go home again
    D                         G             A                       D
The green green grass and the rollin' hills seems to keep a callin' me
D                       G                  A                   D
Back to the place where I was born and the girl that I long to see
