You have heard and read about the state of Tennessee
Down in the southern state is where I want to be
Where the valleys are so green and the mountains are so tall
You will know just what I mean when you hear them say You all

    Tennessee, (Tennessee)
    I hear you calling me (I hear you calling me)
    The home of Davy Crockett in the hills of Tennessee

When I was a little boy around the folks back home
My mother always said to me, Jimmy, please don't roam
Now that I have gone away my heart is full of woe
When I think of Mom and Dad, that's where I want to go

* Refrain

If ever I get back to that state of Tennessee
I tell you there'll be no more roaming for me
There lives a sweetheart who said she'd marry me
As soon as I get back to that state of Tennessee

 * Refrain
