[Verse 1] 

D
Along about eighteen twenty-five,
   C                  C6   C
I left Tennessee very much alive.
  D
I never would have got through the Arkansas mud
D                                       Am D     Am  D
If I hadn't been a-ridin' on the Tennessee Stud.
D
I had some trouble with my sweetheart's pa,
    C                                    C6 C
And one of her brothers was a bad outlaw.
  D
I sent her a letter by my Uncle Bud,
D                            Am  D     Am  D
And I rode away on the Tennessee Stud. 

[chorus]
    D
The Tennessee Stud was long and lean,
    C                         Bb7        A7     Bb7 A7
The color of the sun, and his eyes were green.
D
He had the nerve and he had the blood,
D                                           Am  D     
And there never was a horse like the Tennessee  Stud.

[Verse 2]

D
We drifted on down into no man's land,
   C                                      C6  C
We crossed that river called the Rio Grande.
  D
I raced my horse with the Spaniard's foal
D                               Am      D    Am  D
'Til I got me a skin full of silver and gold.
D
Me and a gambler, we couldn't agree,
   C                             C6  C
We got in a fight over Tennessee.
   D
We jerked our guns, and he fell with a thud,
D                     Am        D    Am  D
And I got away on the Tennessee Stud.


[Chorus]

    D
The Tennessee Stud was long and lean,
    C                         Bb7        A7     Bb7 A7
The color of the sun, and his eyes were green.
D
He had the nerve and he had the blood,
D                                           Am  D     
And there never was a horse like the Tennessee  Stud.

[Verse 3]

D
I got just as lonesome as a man can be,
C                                C6 C
Dreamin' of my girl in Tennessee.
    D
The Tennessee Stud's green eyes turned blue
D                                  Am     D   Am D
'Cause he was a-dreamin' of a sweetheart, too,
D
We loped right back across Arkansas;
  C                         C6          C
I whupped her brother and I whupped her pa.
  D
I found that girl with the golden hair,
D                                 Am  D     Am D
And she was a-riding on the Tennessee Mare.

[chorus]
    D
The Tennessee Stud was long and lean,
    C                         Bb7        A7     Bb7 A7
The color of the sun, and his eyes were green.
D
He had the nerve and he had the blood,
D                                           Am  D     
And there never was a horse like the Tennessee  Stud.

[Verse 4]

D
Stirrup to stirrup and side by side,
   C                              C6     C
We crossed the mountains and the valleys wide.
   D
We came to Big Muddy, then we forded the flood
D                                    Am D     Am D
On the Tennessee Mare and the Tennessee Stud.
D
A pretty little baby on the cabin floor,
  C                          C6         C
A little horse colt playing 'round the door,
  D
I love that girl with the golden hair,
D                                       Am D     Am D
And the Tennessee Stud loves the Tennessee Mare.


[Chorus]
    D
The Tennessee Stud was long and lean,
    C                         Bb7       A7     Bb7 A7
The color of the sun, and his eyes were green.
D
He had the nerve and he had the blood,
D                                           Am  D     
And there never was a horse like the Tennessee  Stud.
