Mountains of Tennessee

 

Take me [E]back, take me back to my old mountain home,

take me [A]back where my heart longs [E]to be,

where we played by the brook in the cool shady nook,

in the [B7]mountains of Tennessee.

In my [E]old mountain home, where the wild roses bloom,

is a [A]spot just like heaven to [E]me.

Take me [A]back, take me back to my [E]old mountain home,

in the [B7]mountains of Tennes[E]see.

 

Take me back, take me back to my old mountain home,

take me back to my old mother’s knee,

where the stars shine bright and the birds sing free,

in the mountains of Tennessee.

Round my old mountain home, where I used to roam,

they’re waiting a welcome for me.

Take me back to my old log cabin home,

in the mountains of Tennessee.
