New york city ain’t no kind of placeFor a country girl with a friendly faceIf you smile people look at you funnyThey take it wrongThe greenest state in the land of the freeAnd the home of the grand ole opryIs calling me back to my smoky mountain homeI wish I had my old fishin’ poleAnd was sitting on the banks of the fishing holeEating green apples and waiting for the fish to biteLife ain’t as simple as it used to beSince the big apple took a bite out of meAnd lord, I’m so tennessee homesick that I could dieChorus:But I ain’t been home in I don’t know whenIf I had it all to do over againTonight I’d sleep in my old feather bedWhat I wouldn’t give for a little bitty tasteOf mama’s homemade chocolate cakeTennessee homesick blues running through my headMama you can fluff my feather bedJust as soon as I can I’m gonna headBack to the tennessee hills and it better be soonDaddy you can load the rifles upWe’re gonna load them dogs on the pickup truckAnd take off to calhoun country and catch us a coonRepeat chorusEatin’ grits and gravy and country hamGo to church on sunday with dinner on the groundsTennessee homesick blues are runnin’ through my headRepeat chorusGood lord have mercy on a country girlTryin’ to make a living in a rhinestone worldIt’s hard to be a diamond in a rhinestone worldWith tennessee homesick blues runnin’ through my headI’ve got those tennessee homesick blues runnin’ through my headTennessee homesick blues
