Tennessee Girl  Charley Pride

Tennessee Girl
By Charlie Pride
Capo 1
Well [C]I left home at a [F]crack of dawn [G]just about a year a[C]go
I [C]thumbed my way cross the [F]USA and I [G]learned a lot I didn't [C]know
The [C]Promised Land that I [F]thought I'd find was [G]always just ahead of [C]me
Un[C]til one day when I [F]realized I l[G]eft it back in Tennes[C]see
And that's [C]why I'm going back to my [G]Tennessee girl
And a [F]Tennessee way of [C]life
And [C]I'm gonna ask my [G]Tennessee girl
To [F]be my Tennessee [C]wife
By night I slept in a hobo camp workin' odd jobs by day
I never got enough to get ahead just enough to make my way
Cold and tired when the evening come all I had to ease my mind
Was thinkin' bout the place I started from and the girl that I left behind
Key change
There [D]ain't no place that I [G]been at all that [A]I would gonna settle [D]in
And e[D]very town that I [G]travel through made me [A]wanna go home a[D]gain
The [D]green green grass and the [G]rollin' hills [A]seems to keep a callin' [D]me
[D]Back to the place where [G]I was born and the [A]girl that I long to [D]see
