Home In Tennessee

 

       G                                       C                        G

Oh, yes, I'm going back to my home in Tennessee,

                                                         D

back to the girl that's waiting in the cotton fields to see.

    G                                                  C                 G

There's a mother and a dad that's waiting patiently,

                                                                    D                        G

and the place I'm longing for tonight's my home in Tennessee.

 

+  instrumental = CHORUS

 

          G                                            C                               G

1. I'll sail the skies in airplane to a place called Bunker’s Hill,

                                                                           D

    I'll drop from the clouds in a parachute and, oh, boys what a thrill.

            G                                                     C                            G

    My song shall fall in no man’s land and I'm in the great prairie,

                                                                       D                       G

    but the place I'm longing for tonight's my home in Tennessee.

 

+  CHORUS       +  instrumental = CHORUS

 

                          G                               C                     G

2. I've been to Frisco's Golden Gate, also Bangor, Maine,

                                                                   D

    I've been to the Rocky Mountains and back down again,

           G                                              C                  G

    and up to old New York, saw the Statue of Liberty,

                                                                       D                       G

    but the place I'm longing for tonight's my home in Tennessee.
