There's a girl with whom I'm in love, in Tennessee!
And I found the nest of my dove, in Tennessee!
Tho' she was shy when I first did exclaim, "You're fair as can be!"
Soon she recover'd and told me her name, it's sweet Jenny Lee!

Sweet Jenny Lee, for you the magnolia is blooming,
Sweet Jenny Lee, you're as fair as flow'r could be;
You are the darling that captured my heart,
Off to the church we will presently start,
And in a wedding we'll both take a part, sweet Jenny Lee!

There are Southern beauties so rare, in Tennessee!
But with Jenny there's none can compare, in Tennessee
When in the moon light a sweet little kiss she gave onto me,
My heart was bathed in a fountain of bliss by sweet Jenny Lee! - Refrain
Two young lovers will shortly be wed, in Tennessee!
To the altar a bride will be led, in Tennessee!
All of the bells in the village will ring for her and for me,
And all the old color'd servants will sing for sweet Jenny Lee! -Refrain.
