Robert Earl Keen – Leavin Tennessee lyrics

The sun is settin'
On our time living here
You've lost the will
I've lost the heart
We should be leavin'
While the coast is still clear
Cause we won't make it after dawn
We can cash in our chips
And pack up the car
Lock up the door
And hide the key

The only two things that mean anything to me
Are loving you
And leaving Tennessee

Silver eagles fly down streets paved with gold
Stars keep shining through the dawn
Anything you can dream of to hold
You can have here for a song
But there's a song tonight
That's riding the wind
I'm the words
And you're the melody

The only two things that mean anything to me
Are loving you
And leaving Tennessee

It's just the two of us
All out on our own
That's the way it ought to be

The only two things that mean anything to me
Are loving you
And leaving tennessee

We can call up all our friends on the phone
Tell them that someday we'll return
First, we have to start to make a new home
We have one last bridge to burn
Lay your head down and we'll drive
Through the night
And in the morning light you're gonna see

The only things that mean anything to me
Are loving you
And leaving Tennessee

The only things that mean anything to me
Are loving you
And leaving Tennessee
