|G / / / |C / G / |
Oh, a long, long time a-go when I left my home to roam,
G / / / |D / /
Down in the hills of Tennes-see,
/ |G / / / |C / G / |
There's the sweetest little girl that was ever in - this world,
G / D / |G / G7
Down in the hills of Tennes-see.
/ |C / / / |G / / /
Oh, little girl - of mine in Tennes-see,
|G / / / |D / / /
I know - she’s waiting there for me,
|G / / / |C / G
Some-day I’ll settle down in that little coun - try town,
/ |G / D / |G / / / |
With that little girl - of mine in Tennes-see.
Oh, she begged me not to go “You’ll be sorry dear I know”,
For the way that you’ve been treating me,
So I rambled all around but nothing could be found,
To take the place of her in Tennessee.
Oh, someday I’ll wander back to that little mountain shack,
The little girl that’s waiting there for me,
I can see her smiling face waiting for me at the gate,
The little girl of mine in Tennessee.
