Hank Williams – TENNESSEE BORDER lyrics

Recorded by Hank Williams, Sr.
Words and music by Jimmy Work
Her [G] eyes were blue, her hair was [D7] auburn
Her smile was like an angel [G] fair
She was her daddy's only [D7] daughter
On the Tennessee [G] Border [G7]
One [C] night I took a ride just across the [G] line
I [A7] picked her up in a pickup truck
And she [D] broke this heart of [D7] mine
Her [G] mama said: "No-o, [D7] she's my only daughter,"
But we got married on the Tennessee [G] Border.
The roses were bloomin' [D7] there on the Border
The moon was shinin' [G] there
Her personality made me [D7] want her
On the Tennessee [G] Border.
