I left the west coast, watched the palm trees
Wave goodbye, it was a hard drive
Had to say goodbye to you
I stopped for some Coca-cola and some corn nuts too
I thought about turning back, I already missed you

Chorus:
If you need me, burn it up, bend the rules, leave right away
If you need me, take a four-lane headed my way
Take a bus, take a plane, take a car, take a train
Take a bike, hitch a ride, you decide
If you need me, you know where I'll be, yeah
In Tennessee

Going through my boxes found a photograph,
Where you were sitting on a mule in Meixo, picture perfect point of view
And then a post card dropped from a book you gave me
On my birthday, and it hit me baby

Chorus
If you need me, burn it up, bend the rules, leave right away
If you need me, take a four-lane headed my way
Take a bus, take a plane, take a car, take a train
Take a bike, hitch a ride, you decide
If you need me, leave LA, we'll take it day by day
All alone, here I am, by the phone, understand
It's not too late, what are you waiting for
If you need me, you know where I'll be, yeah
In Tennessee

It's a Sunday morning, I awake, just another lonely day
I lie in bed and wonder how long it this gonna take
Then I think so myself, will I ever get a break
Or did I make a big mistake?

Well, I light the fire, I'll draw the bubble bath, hey, you do the math
It's just me, and I'm without you, what else could I do?

Repeat first chorus
